The physical manifestation of what is or was and forever still is. Love or aberrations that crawl underneath to change who you are and your influence around others.

The piece talks about the idea of love and it’s eventual influence on you and the people around you. A parent’s love that guides the values and morales, a friend and the good times, a lover and their concerns of the future, and the lover that once or never was that scarred you.

You are but the chimera of the people and the relationships of what is, to be and once was.
