The darkness closes in
The flashback begins
A swirling of emotions
A wrinkle in time

Pandora opened the box
The numbness fades away
Like the rush of the ocean
The emotions flood through me

A wave of light sweeps across the sky
A sweet aroma lingers in the air
My body tingles from the warmth
Of a cherished embrace
The sweet sound of a million whispers
The saying of a thousand “I love you”s
The melodies of laughter ringing in the air
The radiance of smiles lighting up the overcast sky
A moment in time when beauty exists
When all was heaven on earth
That was my world

Now a simple memory so vivid in sense
The fragment of something
So deep, real, and intense
Yet like the flame on a candle
All flickers out in a matter of seconds
Sweeping me back into reality
And leaving behind a strong sense of nostalgia
Nothing else
