HALLOWED

Grounds now soaked
spirits found to linger
emotions strong evoked
love, confusion, anger.

Returning once too often
finding places once more
unable my memory soften
not like closing the door.

Hallowed here lay friends
only visualization to remind
how different thought ends
in life to some very unkind.

Struggling not with why
for it was somehow known
just sometimes to cry
in precious dreams shown.
