A stolen past, a regretful history. Washed away by the will to live and breathe the present. The future, a stepping stone away. Ignored by the avidity to live for the moment.
Strapped to the harnesses of a one way rollercoaster ride. A surge of spontaneous combustion of exuberance, gaiety and ultimate satisfaction. Drowned in a euphoric world of the impetuous and unconstrained. Wings spread out, neck held up high, feeling the adrenaline, the rush and the thrill of the unexpected turns.
Yet the inevitable appears, and this ride has to stop. A tattoo of the memory embedded into our skins, straps leaving marks and bruises that we know we could never forget. Turning into different paths as we exit this invigorating chapter.
An alternative past created by this unrepentant chapter. An ever evolving story, read out over and over again. A ride we may revisit in the distant future.
The tattoo left embedded into my soul.
A tattoo embedded into our souls.
