    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

    so much

    food for thought in this piece, all of it culminating in one of the "growth properties" found in nostalgia:

    "While remembering
    the thoughts beyond
    good-byes"

    this is working for me this a.m.


    thank you

    A
