Time

Written by: Theresa T

It is incredible 
how time has the power
to fade from your memory
the name
of someone you thought you would never forget;
how it can blur the sounds you thought you had memorized,
removing any distinct melody from memory;
how it can purify your nostrils and prevent you
from savouring the sweet scents of the past.

It is incredible 
how time has the power
to make you feel as though the best days of your life
are actually only a distant dream
that someone else,
not yourself,
lived.
