you and me and time

3

we both plead for time
to take pity on us poor
souls
and keep the
things we’ve kept so far.

time specializes in removing
memories
and everything
that once was
no longer is.

let’s don’t let time
do such a horrible
thing
to everything we’ve ever had
and everything I’ve ever known.

please don’t let
time
talk you into
forgetting
me.


x, abby

  5. Okay first of all you are so freakin' gorgeous. And I really love your poem. It makes me feel so nostalgic. Reminds me of the song "Waltz for Pony" by a band called BOY.

    And the poem? It's...so...brilliant. Continue being beautiful and writing brilliantly.
