Yesteryear

My mouth was parched in the years beyond the known.

The Mayan’s clock ceased to tick, destiny was blind.

With water a fading memory I walked the world alone

until coming across a fountain the fates dared to be kind.

.

I lowered my head to the waters crystal clear

when a melodic voice rung through my head uncouth.

‘Each sip from here, gain a day, yet lose one more from yesteryear’

‘How thirsty will you have to be to drink from the fountain of youth’

.

I thought it worth the price, to gain and lose a day.

Flowing like diamonds through fingers of greed

each mouthful I dared swallow made a memory fade away.

My innocence rebuilding, erasing each and every deed

.

Drinking my fill, losing past thoughts both small and grand

I clasped on to one, of a ring I was giving.

With panic I wretched, hurling liquid of life onto sand

For without memories of love, life cannot be worth living…
