Drifting On A Faded Memory

Rain drops dance against the window pane

In the distance the sound of thunder

Gives voice to its ascendancy

Lightening caresses the night

Wind cries out in hellacious voice

Inside a fire roars

Soft music plays in the background

A bottle of vintage wine waits lonely

The ambiance swallows up the room

Pictures rest above the fireplace

Faces looking back appear

Serene never been touched

By life’s malicious milieu

One photograph sits off

To the side by itself

Distant vague

You’re drawn to it

Yearning pulls you in

The eyes hold so many secrets

Stepping away that old melancholy

Feeling makes you sway

All those feelings you thought

You’d swept away under a rug

Rush in all over again

Remembering nights like this

Souls intertwined

Kismet spirits

Minds of unity

Beat of hearts

The caress of lips

Gentle exploration of hands



Thought that sensation would

Never come to an end

Sound of rain becomes louder

In an intrepid effort to drown

Out reminiscences

Reinventing scenarios

Holding on to something that’s not real

Nomadic remembrance

Gray mist collecting

Ancient reminisce

Muse over

Failure you cogitate

Dusty cobwebs Inhibit romancing

Reflection of love dying away

As the fire unhurriedly burns

To embers





After the storm crescendo of

Emotions fade leaving you

Drifting on a faded memory

This is absolutely beautiful, sad and reflective. I share some of these life experiences, the past does come back to haunt me from time to time. That picture on the mantle brings a tear to my eye, it's a photo of the children I've lost. Thank you for this beautiful poem, it was felt deeply.
