Frozen Memories (July 12, 2010 @ 11:55pm)

I captured a moment in time
One previously forgotten
For a split millisecond, I held, felt and tasted
what was experienced by another

And as if mimicking a lost history,
I peeked and glimpsed light
from eroded fragments of life
a pile of dust, almost swept away

A moment captured
Time froze
filling me with borrowed memories
not mine but hers…

I stumbled and stole, for her, a timeless joy
Her heritage of happiness in the midst of my rubble
I smiled, I laughed, for in that frozen moment I too was happy

I trembled with excitement
knelt and wrote, seizing in Black and white
my own emotions, as her own
The clock stopped
I found my Best Friend‘s Watch!!!
