set ablaze

Updated on July 8, 2010

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.

      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! ;)
