Childhood Memories

How often does your childhood memories 
Haunt you so? Deep asleep? 
When you awake at dawn? Halfway through 
The Rubicon of your daydreams?
In the thick of solitude, or just when 
You wax nostalgic with your folks?
Do you hold happy ones so dear you wish to 
Turn back the hands of time and relive them?
Do you remember them vividly
Or do they clog your memory like a fog?
How long do they fade into oblivion
Before they spring back again like a boomerang?
Do they keep lingering and floating 
In your mind like a cloud, or do they 
Steal away as quick as a flash of lightning?
Do the unpleasant ones stick to 
Your mind like metal sticks to magnet
Or do they escape like grains of sand do 
When squeezed tightly under a clenched fist?
