Never go away

29 Jul

Blue Window by Thomas Saliot

It can be so tempting.

You remember the first steps of discovery. The tentative words.

The sense of recognition. The coincidences. The incredible similarities. The attraction of opposites.

The meeting of minds.

How you laughed

at everything.

The endless, meandering, bright, eloquent, charming, perfect conversations.

Light shining in eyes.

You recall the desire, the ache, the longing, the shared yearning.

The exploration.

The bliss of bodies.

The joy of one.


It is so tempting to go back

But the reasons why

it all went wrong

never really go away.

    No they don’t. How did you know I needed these words today?

    Yes, it can be so very tempting. Well expressed (as always) and beautiful in it’s stark poignancy.

    beautiful writing Mr. D. I think this is one of my favorites from you, but there are so many lovely poems it is not be easy to select a “favorite”.

    hindsight always pulsates in the romance of nostalgia. X

    So well mapped out this circuitous meanderings of memory, skirting regret. Sigh.
