I'm standing in the dark,
What do I see around me?
I see old memories,
Broken like so many mirrors.

They reflect back at me
The happier days of my life.
Yet none show the whole picture,
As all are shattered.

Once I saw my dreams,
Bathed in silver moonlight.
Now there's only nightmares,
Blotting out the stars.

I reach toward my future,
Only to be shoved back.
Oppressing clouds fill the sky,
Shrouding me in misery.

Can I even remember
My happy days of innocence?
Only bits and pieces,
As shattered reflections.
