Flashback - Sunday Scribblings #235

Written for Sunday Scribblings prompt 235 - Flashback


Perhaps

the people

we once were

stalk our inner corridors

walking them like ghosts

holding on

to fragments of memory

and strains of music

that we

can no longer

hear

and perhaps

the nuances and scents

of times past

permeate

hidden inner corners

awaiting

the subtle moments

that trigger recollections

of things long gone

things

that maybe

we would much rather

forget

.
Also shared at the poetry pantry at poets united.

This poem was very, very beautiful. I loved the imagery you used and the way I couldn't read it without picturing everything in my mind. I absolutely loved "Perhaps the people we once were stalk our inner corridors walking them like ghosts." This was such a wonderfully written piece. Almost like music.

Well done! :]

Susannah, this is very thought-provoking, but also very eerie. I like where your mind went with this!

So true.

other comments pretty well cover the bravos and hoorahs. All I can do is add mine. Nice work and more bravos and hoorahs from me.

Nice writing, Susannah. I do think there is truth -- that the people we once were ARE still somewhere inside us.
