Voices talk and echo in a crescendo,
Bouncing off the chambers of the catacombs
That lie within my memories
Of family members who have passed.
They tell me they have my back,
So I do not need to be alarmed.
Do I dare look to see if they are there?
What if I were to smell their cologne
Or gaze into their eyes?
I look across the threshold
Separating the living from the dead,
Knowing full well they are no longer with us.
A small room opens into an expansive space,
With a dimly lit horizon.
The sky and the earth appear to merge
Into a misty cloud with shadowy figures all around.
Despite all of my brain health recovery efforts, I still occasionally hear voices. Sometimes they remind me of lost family members.
