Poem: Tempus et Memoria: A Conversation

Tempus et Memoria: A Conversation


Has it been so long ago,
when I danced for hours
to the loud beat
and lights,
the smell of smoke
and beer
and sweat
and lust
all wrapped around the words?

Time,
I tell you, Time,
the me in here
remembers how it felt
to have the music take me places,
beyond the taste of bourbon
and the flashing lights
and dreams of youth
and expectation.
I know you’ve heard it all before,
Time,
but still,
I cling to the memory,
and know,
that somewhere in my mind,
it will always be true.
