All that I Own
smileforme

What can I say?
 1
Of old aquaintances
 2
Old loves
 3
Trysts and affairs
 4
Smiles and tears
 5
 
 
I find there is not much left to say
 6
And chose to say nothing
 7
Only to revel in reflection
 8
As well as to die within
 9
Those frozen moments
 10
Existing before the world could corrupt
 11
 
 
The innocent smiles
 12
Laughs
 13
The knowing stares
 14
That share more
 15
Than simple pleasures
 16
 
 
Those glowing beacons in memory
 17
Falling far out of the reach of time
 18
And percieved boundaries
 19
 
 
I live for
 20
Though I spend most of my life between
 21
Those moments
 22
Beyond value
 23
 
 
Within my perception anyway
 24

Cliche, no?
