Flashback

Flashback of a trauma
of intense immediacy
while reveling
in gross hypocrisy.

Fortunes won and lost
without a feeling of the cost
of what seemed real.
Meant to be - their destiny walked in.

Fate trembling within the grasp
of many mortal minds
conceived without the trust
that it must find.

There was a time
when kindness entered in.
When hours were used
to contemplate a life beyond
abuse and make it real.

The dream arose again
amid the pain. Flashback
of a trauma that relived
itself again.

In time and space
without the grace
of love...
