for the briefest moment
the briefest moment;
Forgot the now
and tasted recollected seawater
on your throat
I remembered my arm
on your chest
my fingers on your face
but then
Realised the now
And so;
pulled back my hand
into today
where we don’t
Never again.

    The best part ~ no one would know that you were attempting a 55 word challenge . . .

    It’s an inspiring poem regardless of the word count.

    My favorite line: “I forgot the now and tasted recollected seawater on your throat.”

    Be here now! : )

      Have you heard of Imago Therapy, may be a good option for the narrator of this poem?

    So sad, and so well said. I can feel my mind stretch from here to the past and back.
