Do you wonder

a thought that lies dormant deep in your mind
does it still come to life after all of this time

like a flickering light that starts to burn out
that somehow gains power and continues about

when a determined being has been sure to ignore
all of these moments from times of before

now after years, after new memories made
do you let the old movies come out and replay

do you ever take evenings and just close your eyes
lay down in your bed and let history fly

or has that door locked, and you have gone on
with no urge to look back on timing gone wrong

    I love this! The rhymes and imagery are wonderful. The second couplet is my favourite.
