Victory

A Story-Poem

Photo from Canva

I search
high and low
for the memories
I have lost.
I dig
through the dirt
of the rose garden
with my bare hands.
I cannot run.
I cannot hide.
She waits
at the altar
for my return
from the dead.
I discard
the future
in the garbage can
and hope for victory
and salvation.
