989 - Mental Turns

Poet’s United Midweek Motif : Nostalgia

Mental Turns

Nostalgia plays 
Its siren song;
We fall 
Beneath its spell.

We reconstruct 
The past and smile
At stories it can tell.

It’s false,
This bright and mental waltz.
And quite pointless because
Wistfully hopeful, we long
For something 
That never was.

  1. Nostalgia's not what it used to be.

  2. Here is the truth of it. And yet...


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
