Nightmares are only reverse dreams,
And ghosts are merely shadows.
Memories are just vivid streams,
Of self-perceptioned scenes.
Dreams are only reverse nightmares,
And shadows are merely ghosts.
Memories are the eyes which stare,
Deep down into our souls.
Phantoms haunt, and memories hurt;
And nightmares destroy dreams….
While time ticks on and on: inert,
To what we tell ourselves.
