Time Travel

Note to Former Self

Today in High School
when everyone laughed
and you thought you’d die
of embarrassment:
The gym … God, the gym …
was much colder
than you ever thought possible….
Believe it or not, that
was nothing.

No one will remember it
twenty-five years from now
except you.
It’s a backwater swamp
in memory, a lonely tributary
to a wide river
running to far brighter
and darker
seas.

  1. I once time travelled using the medium of lucid dreaming to revisit my former self at a very low time in my first year at university; it comforted my former self enough that the new memory superceded the worst of the pain of the old one.
    Nicely put.
