The Taste Of Yesteryears

a smell, a sound or a ghost
pins us back in time
a duality in the timeline
one foot in reality
the other in the past

echoes of the familiar
trap us quite robustly
forcing a face-to-face
as harsh realities present
a reckoning of our actions

will we learn
or are we doomed
to repeat the recollections
over and over
in our unsatisfying dreams

  1. Wow! I really love the thoughts and verses here, Susi!!! The title is amazing! Really captures what we do with our memories – go back to taste them again – the Sweet, the Bitter and the Bittersweet! Bellissimo, My Dear Bellissimo!!
