Poem - Past Revived

The poem “Past Revived” was inspired by a dream that touched on a theme common to my nocturnal travels.  The first line of the poem came to mind, “ask the memories why they stay”.


Past Revived

Ask the memories why they stay
especially in the realm of dreams
reminders of long lost times
forever gone come to the mind

those revenants from the graves
laid to rest in distant days
were thought to be in slumbered rest
now disabuse the present state

peace would reign without the voice
carried from the interned throats
now rising to share their wails
to cast aside forgetting veils

those curtains let in the distress
once thought dead and left behind
demand an answer for the reply
the buried past will be revived.
