A to Z challenge: Day 9
I is for I see time
And for your look of shocked surprise after
I convinced you it was me.
I see time on your face.
You’ve aged well.
Better than me.
Like all my memories from back then
Our time together seems better than it was.
I remember our spent passion
With a wistful, almost rueful irony.
It’s so easy to be affectionate
Now that I have forgotten why I left you in the first place.
I like to think we could capture those moments again.
When passion could still overtake us.
But, then I would feel regret
get distracted wondering how it might have been
And that would ruin the whole reason
For this brief visit.
