Triggered Effect

i am bonded
in memories
of my yesterdays
not through desire

i still choke 
on that air
as it falls
steel force
like a bullet
in wind

the smell 
of stale beer
and cigarettes
as you
rolled barrels back
and flicked
more than bics

i remember
your mind 
fully loaded
half-cocked
as you raged
within

i felt trapped
like the moon 
on a stormy night

thunder rang out
then silence fell
through the smoky trail
as it blazed by
i lifted the veil
and mourned
the part of me
that died

i still live
bonded 
in memories
of my yesterdays
though not by desire

    Mind scars are the most difficult because they are not so easily seen. Also we work so hard to hide them. By keeping them guarded we don't allow them to heal.

    Hello Sandra, I don't know what to say. There was so much emotion in this. I don't know where to start. But, that I like how it began with unfed memories without the touch of desire.. the end was much heavier than i expected .... xxoxx...Linda
