HC10: Owl

Owl old memory book past

Shadows of our past
Captured in fairy tales
Never give a true picture.
Sometimes late at night
I feel your mournful gaze,
Like a silent, sentry owl,
Feasting on my tears,
Perhaps commiserating.
The dissolution of dreams
Sent that love somewhere,
Waiting to be recaptured
Out of crumbling, sepia air.
