False Recollection

He calls back his memories as if each detail
is as clear as the drops of rain on the window.

His confidence unchecked,
his recollections, all but a few, flawed.

Additive details hardly feasible,
entire scenes unwillingly forgotten,

whether for wishful thinking, or unconscious will to forget.
These memories, his memories, are wrapped in a clear film of optimism,

not clear enough to deceive the others,
But so clear as to convince his own mind.
