In Lost, Submission on August 17, 2010 at 3:02 pm

The past is nothing more than a reflection
mirrored by skewed remembrances,
amalgamated dreams and representations;
whereas the present is nothing more than
a feel, a thought, a word, a sentence.
As you read this, and let the lines past
bleed into a message,
remember that
it no longer is, just as memories of childhood
just bleed into what you can recall,
a feel, a smell, a sound, a sight.
The past is just a star,
still visible but no longer there, lost
among black empty space.
Just as the stars
inspired the past,
the past inspires the present, 
not from its being, but from its absence,
the reflection on a black night,
skewed by what we now live with:
a feel, a thought, a word, a sentence,
a message: nothing more.

-Andrew Deloucas, Tampa.
