Love Frozen In Time....


On a heavily smudged and slow fading image
Of a grey moth eaten college magazine page
She still stands so frozen in time
The one I once wanted to be mine
Ages ago in the green of my youth
Was it love or something more
I will never ever perhaps know
But, t’was something in those eyes
Those tender glass bangled hands
And those tender shifty stares
Across benches in hot and humid classrooms
That often seemed to softly beckon
That often seemed to softly whisper
Things that I’ll never ever know
Never ever, ever never, never ever
Sitting decades far....so far away
On an armchair of turbulent memories
In the slight caressing evening breeze
In the dying light of just a another day.............

    From a moth eaten magazine
    And a faded, smudged photo
    Memories cascade out
    And a pair of eyes follow

    Yea, those sweet college days are gone, but some faces stick out! ! Very nostalgic! ! (Report) Reply
