Flashback

Time seemed to pass so slowly Yet so quickly and I begged for more time It happens almost daily One touch will prompt me Even stop me in my tracks

Flashback is a poem written by Kelli J. Gavin and shared with The Ugly Writers for the month of November.

 

Flashback

 

It takes only one sight
One sound
Even a scent
And I am brought back
To a time when things were easy
I flashback to when things were smooth
Time seemed to pass so slowly
Yet so quickly and I begged for more time
It happens almost daily
One touch will prompt me
Even stop me in my tracks
A hand on the small of my back
A kiss to my temple
Hands in my hair
A lingering kiss
A hug where we never wanted to let go
Take me back
Flashback
To a time when things were easy
Oh so smooth
I want it all back
Every sight
Of you approaching for an embrace
Each sound
Of you humming unaware
Your scent
I wish for it to last on my clothing
Your touch
I want it all
To flashback
To a time when things were easy
