A thousand voices instantly quieted
Snuffed out like a candle in advance of bedtime
The silent chorus prevented from lamenting
Their terms no more time echo by means of the halls of my brain
Specters of times past invade my views
Roaming the corridors unabated
Penetrating deeply into gray subject and extracting hope
Replacing it with acceptance, consuming remembrance
Our unity has all but dissolved, like sugar stirred in tea
It spirals in a vortex and then disappears
Its sweet style never to be consumed by us once again.
