Reminiscence-Ashley Jane

We spend our days
hanging on to old moments
deep within the heart,
trespassing through bookstores and bars,
storing memories between dusty pages
as we sip on sorrow,
burying our lament in the fiery burn

We spend our nights barely breathing,
listening to sad songs,
caught up in the dark turbulence
of moontides and madness,
drawing dreams within the smoke,
trading secrets with ghosts,
looking for purpose to calm the chaos inside
