The Jurisdiction Of Nostalgia

Days were walking promptly into the realms of year
The picture of reality clouded but for me it’s err
I just wanted to reminisce the single moments
So, I may put a string of memories to ease my vehement

How I wish, I could stop the time for revival
And have time of sentiments, flash in empire state of rival
That I may have a great look in my past and present
And partnered with great laughs and lone tears ‘cause everything is decent

…smiles on each countenance…
In every achievements that have been achieved
…sparkling eyes of persevere…
In every obstacles that have been hurdled
…sweat like glitter on the air…
In every missions that have been accomplished
…dance of the dreamer…
In every dreams that have been reached

…tears randomly on each face…
In every depressions that are depressing
…supremacy of grief dominates…
In every losses that are aching
…staring at nowhere…
In every shortcomings that are bothering
…sad façade of faces…
In every fails that are disturbing

Those were real compartment of bliss, downs and success
That may never be turn to, that’s why, I’m a moment-obsess
I just want to cherish that moments for main reason
I have one life to experience such time, it is comparison

    Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: you find the present tense, but the past perfect!

    we must get all from the experiences of life and make use of them in order to achieve what we need to be happy. every tears are drops of knowledge we have been achieved.

    I had to read this twice to digest it properly which it prompted and your style is original with talent...and your effort to put it in reality draws away from simplicity,
    i.e read the top read poem'.I am Woman' You can do it, for I give it++++10 never the less,
    regards

    You write well the wistful plea for simple and honest living in the Now - - I like the first phrases of introduction with 'days walking promptly into the year' - - very well written Sheldon.
