the ribbon we cannot untie

a new chapter unfolds

or are we not all

walking stories ?

disappearing seconds like

scintillating snowflakes

as they brush the ground

the same, but different

life penned

streaming through

the ghostly past

that shimmers silently

through the present

steadily looking on into the future

days and chapters

page past monotonously

not until later

when we've forgotten the beginning

returning to reread

to reimagine what went before

attempting to change

what we cannot

in our minds

the past can be shifted, slanted

snowflakes melted

so long ago

words on torn pages

fading as memories do

flipping back

the picture is different

now composed of the good and inevitably

what we've tried to forget

old times bound in sentimental ribbon

that we cannot anymore?
