The Fall

distant memories

easy to recall

fleeting thoughts

of taking the fall


long ago, yet

like yesterday

still brilliant

not black or gray


holding on tight

to feelings and memories

and to the electricity

coursing through me


I remember when

just your touch

was my drug

need it so much

            LOL...sometimes I try to challenge myself and it works, sometimes it doesn't. My favorite is good old fashioned rhyming poetry. Glad you liked this....Christina

                  It's how you say it,
                  It's what you said so poetically
