Flown past

A Faded Romantic's Notebook

I have been reading

our past

our dim distant past

captured like photographs

running like video clips

repeating like gifs

fading on pages

that were new

at the time.

I have been reading

backwards and forwards

endless conversations

desires and wishes

tears and kisses

endings and silence


to remember

and to never forget.

I have been reading

when I should have

been writing.

I have been reading

and the time

has flown past.

I first posted this around this time two years ago.  It was a reflective time then, and it is now. So I have posted it again.
