The present can so shake the past

The present can so shake the past
that memory must fall
upon the mirrored ground of truth;
destroying all we know.
The face so known, familiar,
takes on a distant cast,
as if the demons captured,
their mind and so their heart.
To look upon one that you love,
and see in shivered waves,
a glimpse of someone who has gone;
reveals a love betrayed.
And yet the whispered words do say,
that what seems so unknown,
had lived within familiar shape;
had been there, all along.
