No Greater Sorrow

Past memories linger, 
Scrolling by on a slideshow, 
Painted black and white
Sitting in summer shade, 
Resplendent rays of sunlight
Glaring down, light prevailing
Over all
Back in time, 
The carefree happiness
Of lost days
Those snapshots haunt me, 
Smiling faces mocking, 
Laughing at where I am now
Tears stream down my face, 
And past pale quivering lips, 
My vision blurring 
The bittersweet images
Surrounding me
I want to escape 
From this hell
Let me go
