Nostalgia

Nostalgia

A Poem by Jada Johnson
"

Have you ever triggered painful emotions just by thinking about your past life?

"



so where do I go from here 

one hand on the steer 


moving at the speed of light

wishing you were no place but here


looks like the season changed

but since you’ve been gone I felt

nothing but pain


driving to no destination

hoping i'd see your face again


I was steady working overtime 

I should have been with you that night


the first time I met you 

I knew our hearts had intertwined 


I never thought i'd be in a suit

anytime soon 

looking down at you


sometimes it surprises me how my life 

went on without you 


so when I take my hands off this wheel

it's you that I feel


I know that's something you 

wouldn’t want me to do


but I shall hold on and floor it 

if it brings me closer to you


i'll always remember you

Wow. Your words travel magnifiencently down the page, and I admire your hand, as you transport me to your created scene. I absolutely adored the inclusion of emotion, while the protagonist felt the dangers of releasing the stirring wheel. As she released the very thing which could define her life, she only thought of him. Good work!

Your words have a beat to my ears, and all what I thought of that it would be a very good song, a song for a movie yes, a story that is told in these lines... You did a very good job, though the words are simple, but I feel the great effort You've put into them.

That was nice. You captured it perfectly with your poetic portrait.

The thing I like most about your message is the way you present it in a barely-there way. As I read, I see glimmers of what this could mean . . . was this a car accident? was the narrator there at the scene or was she thinking she should've been there? Many such questions are abundant, since your story isn't fully fleshed out with the details. Many readers have told me that my own writing is too nebulous & they want every detail nailed down. But I like nebulous, becuz it invites the reader to participate, a final meaning that only exists between the writer & each individual reader. Also, there's a good wave of lonely longing conveyed all thru it (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You expressed your emotions really well. I loved the rhyme and flow of this poem.

actually i like to read and get my own interpretation from a piece...and this one speaks to me in sort of a Thelma and Louise sort of way---but it is more like one has lost a significant other...misses that person too much to go on....and decides to join him or her---
once we lose a loved one, the car of life just doesn't run the same---or steer the same....we lose control of our emotions---and those emotions are a destination to which we must drive.
