There are certain experiences that stay with us as we grow older. We remember the certain shades of colors, the temperature and sounds; sensational imprints on the memory that bring us back to exactly how we felt in that particular moment. As a collector of experiences and memories, I often look back to relive a feeling I had. I look for the lighting to be the same. The weather tends to be a southern sultry heat in my memories. I seek a choir of insects, the hum of fluorescent bulbs, the ring of silence in solitude.

Sometimes everything happens just as I remembered. A flood of happiness over takes me as my nostalgic mental snapshot comes back to life. Usually though, everything feels different. I feel older and question what I value. But in the end, I still hold on to the original memory to one day feel it again.


Walking down the hall
Wallpaper's dripping on the floor
and I don't know
when this will end.

Its hard.
I'm gone.

One more time
lost in the world
of mind expansion
and my feet don't touch the ground.

I only wanted
to feel something bigger
but its hard to hold on
to what I found.

You know I try.
You know I'll fight
for what's real
for what's true,
but this time
I lost.

Walking down the stairs
on a snowy morning.
It's all how I dreamt
it would be last night.

Flying down the hills
all bundled up
like a child with no fear.

I only wanted
to feel something bigger
but it's hard
when time
seems to pass us by.

You know I tried.
You know I'm right.
Next time
will be different.
I'll feel it all.
