Walking Backward




Walking backward is awkward at best,
seeing with eyes from behind.
Stalking the twilight memories

A life lived as in a dream,
with reality’s shatterproof heart.

Sweetest of all on hold - held dear,
and wanting to live them again.
Yet how can a soul reach outward and grow,
with the promise of futures unknown,
