The “old places”


I recline
into myself
emotions catch me like pillows and down
my mind brings a rapid playing film stip
memories swirl about until I become intoxicated with my inconstancy
so powerful
these “old places,”
where I never can return
or burnt up possibilities that could be naught a more
dazed, bedazeled i walk, write, wake
will this sober me up?
i want to play make belive in the virtual tapestries of reminsence
i cannot
and will not
or grasp
i cannot contain dreams beyond my mortality
but i put them on prayer
upload them, God
into your eternal kingdom.
and thank you for setting my feet on solid ground and directing my path anew.
