PAST TENSE
 
Haunted by the past life
as reruns of us all.
Do we gleam anything back ?
Is that really you and I ?
Captured by particles on a plastic base
our images are there, they happened.
Our only contact with a life long gone
Some are dead, some wont die.
The only true proof of our existence
locked in time.
Mourn the loss if you must.
We  are separate by a machine
of modern existence, this is it.
