Back in Time

Back in time

In every memory

Every nice thing you have ever

Said rolls through my mind

In the sunset

I can't help but see

The beauty so transparent

Through everything

There are rays of rose

Gold and crimson

Across the sky

I just sit and listen

Just watch

All that is around me

An echoing haze

I dream of you and me

In another life

A different time

Where only pleasure remains

Laughter and smiles

Fill the air

Gentle and sweet

Your embrace

Lifts me to

Somewhere else

Across time and space

Somewhere deeper

More intimate

Where only silence

Is at place


"Never love anyone who treats you like you're ordinary"

What a wonderful journey into a dream like world of past-memories and reflections. I was swept away in your words, and the sense of looking back is so real and immediate.

I love poetry and writing that comes from a heart felt place, and yours is that kind of writing, Caroline. Your poetry is just so inspiring and genuine. Rated and just tweeted to 1400 followers.

Photo suggestion: You sitting in the left chair and the other empty; fits the poem.
