Memories (my title: Fleeting beasts)

It is darkness,
It is sunshine,
An arrangement of images
Playing repeat in your mind.
Not all stay,
Not all leave,
Some fade away too soon
While others linger and tease.
All of the sweet,
All of the sour,
Pain you end up reliving
And happiness you devour.
Leftover shadows,
Leftover dreams,
Living in a fleeting realm
Full of taunts and schemes.

...A hastened childhood,
First lovers scorn,
A life fading away,
While a new babe is born.
An old goal achieved,
Wedding ring that gleaned
Puppy's muddy footprints,
On the floor just cleaned...

(These are the)
Memories tightly kept
Memories shared and told
Memories weathered steadfast
And memories yet to behold

This one has three separate styles in each paragraph, but I also had difficulty deciding how it should end up. So for edits down the road, could have the second paragraph be omitted and stand alone or cut up other ways *shrug* Just threw them all together though.
