just thoughts

Written by: Sandra Adams

thoughts of you dance in my mind
like wind through trees
tossed upward in a breeze

these fragmented memories twirl around
pulled forth from where they once rested
when i tucked them away
so long ago...

a storm as it passes
mingles warm with cold
excitement with fury
fear with anxiety
dark with light

...and then

through all this rain
i  taste the pain
as my emotions bend
like little branches
ready to snap

the what ifs
what could have beens
echo in my mind

...and then
in a flash
they are gone
