In this room, where the ghosts live behind the walls, and the shadows creep from corners, learn that time forgives. In this place, where memories burn and mistakes are erased, know that time forgets. This place becomes an evanescent sepulture for crestfallen spirits. A sonder feeling rushes through you, realizing that something not very nice happened here.  As you walk through this labyrinth of forgotten dreams, the latent sorrow flows through your veins. Events that have been forgotten come flooding back in a sempiternal memory. Burnt pictures and singed letters from long ago cry to be heard. As the tears roll down your down your cheeks, your body begins tremble.  The lambent light of a candle blows out. You look behind you one last time, into the ever growing darkness. You shut the door and leave this place, hoping that your lament was heard.
