the tragedy of stories that cannot be told

for the sickly sweet stories i lament
the tragedies of modern era
that will never see the light of day
i mourn their loss though they are with me always

their names will never be remembered
except in my mind which is not immortalized
like the immortal stories they deserve
i am but a vessel that hides the truth

i cannot speak of them
but i will remember
until my last goodbye
perhaps then i will honor their names

yes i will honor their names
until then my sorrow will be poured
for the names that never have faces
for the voices that cannot be heard
i won't say that i don't know what this is, but i will say that i'm not explaining it.

    I really enjoyed this! Great poem. (Also, hi fellow ace person! Nice to meet you :)! I wrote a short poem about part of my experience of being ace, if you wanted to read it. No worries either way)
