Those Visits With Flashbacks - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Minus and sitting well below zero,
I feel sometimes inside my mind.
Too many pluses of bitter memories nibbling,
And coming at times to visit with flashbacks.
Hoping to stay and relax for a replaying,
Upon my emotions.
I try when they come to subtract them from memory.
But they come to divide,
My happiness to multiply into fractions.
Attempting to add distractions.
And how that made you re-act? '
Yeah, I do!
But you're not staying to chew.
Or chit chat to find a match to anger.
And I do my best to remain positively grounded.
With my confidence in check.
And my sanity under control.
But I confront that negativity,
Wanting all the attention it can get from me.
And something inside me will not allow,
The splitting my peace from a wholeness into pieces.
I let those visits with flashbacks come.
But the leaving is a must that is done to do.
