set ablaze

Reminisce that last kiss,

that lingering touch

and that shiver causing breath across your neck...

candle light and our memories always and forever smothering my mind

I can but grasp at the sands of time, and think back on this time as mine

For the here and now bring with it the stillness of a lake at dead calm

A finality of what used to be

A memory, showing my fraility

A former self indulged by you

I grow alone, in this subdued hue

This sunset that is forever kept

Like the lingering feelings of your spirit

Upon my mind, upon my soul, upon my ever waking skin

I cannot but blame myself for letting you in

You are never forgotten, never dismissed

My memories are a blissful mist

This mist I wipe from my once dry cheek

And I walk again, grasping at the sands of time

sensing your very hand held within mine

And I know...... its simply my memory.... a time that once was...

one that will never again be.

This is very beautiful and I enjoyed it. Skin truly does have memory. That's the way I see it.

Thanks D. Juris Stetser. I can put out some decent stuff when I find the time. Its there somewhere, but, sometimes I get distracted. I've add you and am looking forward to having some time soon to enjoy a coffee and some good reading... Astra and Blaise can attest that I am a serial complimenter, so... beware! ;)
