Martha And The Vandellas - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

'Lover...
You've gone from me
And left behind,
So many memories.'

Here is Martha and The Vandellas,
Singing
Complex and yet simplistic harmonies,
As I reminisce.
And this song I can't forget,
'Come and Get These Memories'
Says how I feel!
I wish you could come and get these memories!
I wish there was a chance,
We could hold and dance like that again!
In the Summer breeze and on the blocked street
Dripping sweat from quick steps done!
But the love we had was like 'Quicksand'.
And in it we were sinking deeper!
'Wild One'
'Heat Wave'
And 'Dancing In the Street'
Recalls those times in our lives well reflected,
With Motown beats...
And the 60's!

'Soooo...
Come and get these memories!
Come and get 'em
Since you've gone out of my life!

Give them to your new love!
Give them to your new love! '

Not really though...
You've become too attached!
And I've become too unwilling to let go!
