Behind the Glass

A quick glance to the right
triggered the shiver from the deepest
part of my soul

Like a whisper in the night
bringing memory into focus
I’m stopped in my tracks
and enshrouded
in a dark and heavy fog

A series of photographs
posed, and etched deep inside my mind
play quickly, vividly
like a silent filmstrip
then fades
leaving muted color
and vague felt-sense memory

Lodged behind a scrim
and never completely melting away
I walk along, wondering
what happened on that day
what happened behind the glass when I glanced to the right

Will, it ever be okay
Will, it ever go away

  2. It seems, that you’re, still reliving the moments of trauma you had to deal with in the past, and, there’s no quick way through it, you can only, face it, standing tall, and after everything had, finally, passed, then, you will, no longer be, nor feel, compelled, to look backwards again…
