Time Travels

Let’s move back in time a bit
Back to when you and I
Me and you
We were one
A whole not apart
Our hearts woven together
Thoughts as one
Differences insignificant
Our bodies crashing
Our hands interlaced
Souls spun and braided

Let’s move to our impotent now
A space created
Distance moving in
Vague answers
I look away
Over my shoulder
Your phone sits in your lap
The screen lights up
I stand and walk away
Promises broken
Dreams unraveling
Lies found out

Let’s move to our future imperfect
I remember you
Our eyes met
Across a crowded room
My heart fumbles
You look down and away
I turn and a single tear
Traces unstopped
How did we get here
We were young
Full of hope
Hollow steps
Empty hearts
Broken home

    This is so well written… So very touching in it’s reflective longing for what has passed and desperate attempts to reconcile with the current moment.
