I write my memories in the sand
By the seashore where I’m spending my last days
The stories live forever in my mind
Until the waves wash me away

Memory stays with me
Love stays with me
Time stays with me
All will wash away.

That sand is falling, grain by grain
Like waterfalls from out my brain
I’m tired, sad, and near insane
All will wash away

    I like it. It’s very self-contradictory, but that winds up feeling very right and very telling. Nice little bit of poetry.
