It came to her
before she could
blink her eyes

FLASHBACKS --
Whiplashing her neck
as she'd seen a blast
from her past...

Thinking of the
days of old
prior to the
previous life
she knows now...

She never knew how
to address the envolope
to mail her own wombaness
to him ~
...but she went postal --
when he couldn't keep his
own manness in his pair
of cotton-lied pants

So much has changed
in spans of time
...5, 10, 15 years ago
preceding the present ~
state-of-mind

She realized that time
doesn't hold grudges ~
...instead it heals her
convoluted mind...

When she closed the book
on Chapter 31
when he was only 21 and
she had reached p(age) 19
...hell they were both
young...

That was then, and
this is now
Forgiving to forget
those that transgressed
enabled her
to progress rapidly
and reduced the hurt
she'd known he caused

She can now slowly
blink her eyes
looking and laughing
~Guilt Free~

While remembering
the thoughts beyond
good-byes

Years of time
formerly known
as Nostalgia's Past life

It's a lot going on and I know I have not been here for a long time but it is about to change.
