Off track

it wasn’t the unwillful

longing but the roar

of my thoughts.

with the speed of

a freight train,

they derailed my


the memories, they


daunting and

unconscious emotion.

It was nine years

ago, I remember

clearly I could

smell the rain

  4. Wow! So vividly described, Eugi. ❤ The roar of thoughts have such immense power to transport us into another time. Perfect gif to meditate on. I’d love that for my computer screen shot.
