............LS AND I............


The fantasy, the flashes and the flushes
The idea and reality of it
LS and I

The moments we cannot take back
Lingered on in the memory
Illuminating the mind and soul

Vivid is yesterday
The singular passionate kiss
The fire extinguished for eternity

The music at Bukoye’s abode
Forever in mind and soul
Where it plays on for all eternity

Time has passed, the world has changed
The feelings never to be rekindled
An indication of a goodbye to yesterday

Time to face reality
To snap out of yesterday
And embrace today without LS and I

Sad, but passionate. I'm not sure who LS is, but I can feel the rawness of this. Long time, Ms. Standtall.
