Wrapped in Darkness

By M. Jay Mansfield

Wave after wave breaking upon my mind
each soft whisper of days gone by
angels of memories and pictures of you
appear as sparkles in the back of my eyes
the warmth of a thousand long dead hugs
creeping sweetly through my soul
The loves that pump me up like no drug
in complete darkness I grin in the mirror

I close my eyes and I see it all
I shut down my simple minds confusion
I answer the gods weak calls
I let the memories explode into me

Wrapped in the extreme brightness of the night
stroking each long gone strand
Caught in its soft beautiful might
fighting to make sure it doesn't release me
