Ancient Ruins

Strange vibrations
As the lantern flickers in the gloom
Ancient memories
Tell me who caused your doom

Long forgotten people
Who built you with their hands
Where have they gone now?
Do they live in distant lands?

Old structures
Ancient ruins of the past
I take the pictures
Temporary memories
I hope that they will last

I enter another corridor
Much stranger than the last
New vibrations
Strange settings
From far into the past

I feel like I’ve been here
Long, long ago
At least I hope I could have been
How will I ever know?

Old ruins
Ancient structures
Extinct feelings from the past
I take the pictures
Ancient images
I hope the feelings last
