Time Traveller

You perforate my normality with snap-shots of the past. Images of yesteryear form a slide show which interjects, dove-tailing, sneaking in to the now with the stealth of the stealthiest fox. Distracted from the present my mind meanders down-stream, pausing at a bridge arched over now and then. Remembering when I was younger, carefree, flitting between hearts, scattering the lovelorn in my wake like sown seeds, lost, never harvested. Then flippancy of youth. The transience. Easy come easy go - before the burden of emotion takes its toll. My fickle fingers touched your heart - then dropped it, hot potato-like; craved for then petulantly discarded, out of fashion, gone, onto the next ..... Yet here you are merging then with now. You found me somehow, and I you. Back to the future. Time travelled and catapulted into familiarity. The perforation of normality. Present in the present with the steel of the steeliest fox.
