at home with ann

Archive for December 29th, 2006

Aromatic smells
Bustling sounds
Still the same
Stuck in a time warp
Nothing’s changed
Since a lifetime ago
Did time stand still
No
If only…
But…
I am not that same young girl
Well…
What if…
We meet again
We do
We do meet again
That awkward kiss
A world away from
The last time
How many years since
Thinking it would be
The last time
The last time ever
Black curtains
Lights out
Silence
Save the sirens wail
Bombs overhead
Bullets beneath our pillow
Guns under our bed
Our quickened breath
Our fevered flesh
Clinging arms
Entwined legs
Seeking comfort
As one we laid
Afraid
To move away
In case it was
The last time
Your thrust embedded deep
Afraid to sleep
Alone
And then the call to serve
And mine
To return home
I wait
No letter
No phone
No nothing
No email then
Are you alive
Are you dead
Then
I met
I wed
I bed another
And now we meet
Thirty years on
Thirty years gone
No
I am not that same young girl
Nor you
My handsome soldier
It’s for the best
We met
But it’s for
The last time
