There Was A Time

CheneyUncategorized, Writing Challenges9 Comments

There was a time when I knew your face
your voice, your hands, your scent, your smile –
I knew you, effortlessly.
There was total instant recall,
none of this having to pluck memories from the abyss
and hope they’re not tainted by time.
I could write your memoirs and sing your gospels,
I could trace your ghost with shut eyes,
effortlessly.

There was a time when I knew you.
There was time,
then.
