A gentle reminder,
a scent so faint,
I was taken years back,
to just you and me.
Neither hatred or love,
longing or frustration,
just a breathless reminder of what was.
I was frozen in time,
your hands on my hips,
whispers in my ears,
tears being ignored,
by these flashbacks,
memories that wouldn't stay at bay.

Standing here breathless,
helpless in this place,
this moment of remembrance,
taking me to a fatal embrace.

    Like the use of "flashbacks" here, Betty ... don't see that word used much and it carries a big load ... LOL ... Hope you are enjoying your summer and return soon with more wonderful writing!!
