In the dark and dreary night, the helpless figure stares out among the people talking about him. He tries to speak, but he is unable to be heard or seen. All he can do is watch and listen. He listens to stories that are about him and what used to be, as well as questions being asked about him. They seem concerned, but he feels like he will soon be forgotten. He will soon become a memory, then possibly forgotten all together.
The figure sighs in discouragement and fades away all together.
