Flashback – Autumn

Spread the love

While sifting through the drawers of an old desk;
Came across a bunch of pictures.
With a cup of coffee – it turned into the perfect mixture.
Reminded of past events – it all seemed so grotesque.

Closing my eyes for just a moment – fell deep into a trance.
“We could make all this work if only you would take my call!”
Glancing towards his stricken face – knew that I would give my all.
Alas! upon reaching the dorm – knew I had to take this chance.

I open my eyes as the spell is broken;
Frantically I dial and call.
Upon hearing his voice – I knew we made it after all.
Jumping up – embraced this moment.
Hear you coming down the hall;
Startled quite a bit – caught me as into your arms I fall.

    So many times the opportunity for reconciliation is lost because neither party makes that call. So pleased you did, and the story has a happy ending.

  15. Marina Sofia says:

    A sunny memory indeed, making one fall even more into the loved one’s arms – fresh, youthful, exuberant. I’d just watch out for the repetition of ‘all’ rhymes in the final stanza – which sounds a little downbeat (falling, mournful) to me – in contrast with the tone of the poem.

    Dreams and photographs can trigger sudden actions of panic or thoughts sent back to another time..We can drift away from the present and scare ourselves upon a return..Love plays many tricks!
