Gone Like a Lozenge

August 4, 2009

Searching the streets for anything cloying,
my body ached,
my stomache moaned,
my thoughs jumbeled.

Turning into the ally,
a glistening yellow wrapper in on the floor catches my eye,
shaking, I slowly open it.

Tears fill my eyes,
and I begin to whimper.

Releasing a honey-like taste,
my head throbbing,
my body sweating,
my stomache aching,
I lay holding the little wrapper.

Savoring the flavor,
I close my eyes.
My thoughts, ideas, feelings,
all being to piece together.

Within seconds, it was all gone.
My mouth became dry.
My thoughts fleed my mind.
My heart,
sunk.

Nostalgic I was,
questioning what I had seen and thought of
those seconds the ideas ran through my mind.
Family.
They were gone,
as the candy,
quickly without notice.
Wonderful,sweet,delicious.
and I was here,
without anything.

The past hitting hard,
allowing me to realize,
I lost the most important thing to me
as quickly as a lozenge is gone.
