Take me back


‘What are you thinking about?’
The past.
‘Why? Let it go- its toxic.’
Why would someone call the past toxic?
For now…It’s my medicine. It’s what keeps me going
and if I had a choice; I would go back to that past.
Not to change anything but to re-live it.

Wouldn’t that be lovely?

Being able to smell all the scents you smelled when you were a kid- The spring flowers, the rich fruits, the sweet candy.

meeting all those childhood friends and experiencing the closeness again; since after that everyone has drifted apart and all we give each other at times is a gentle grateful smile.

Sometimes…The past is better.

It’s not toxic. It’s my tonic.
