_the light of our youth

One hundred years of dawn. A twilight storm of unnameable colors. A flood of yesterday's light. We are back where we began, looking into the horizon like a mirror. After all these years. Fading into right now. We came back to to disappear, to remember what it was like to lose the light of our youth. All thoughts of Paradise forgotten. Only this moment will last... until it doesn't. Then we will reach out for the next, and we will hold onto it with all the life we have left.
