There's always a special place that will take you back in time, always.

We pass the corner every time we step outside
Pretending that we never had anything to hide
Because that's the place where our memories grow.

& It's so empty when you're not here with me
Desolate and barren and dangerous like the sea
And at times I do believe it's going to overflow.

And now when we no longer go there for each other
My mind melts everytime I remember that summer
And the times where I was lost in the afterglow.

So today I passed and embraced the very earth
Because the corner gave me a reason for rebirth
And I still leave there with nothing else to show.

But the corner will always be my lifeline
For all those days I spend searching for a sign
That you have those memories and you'll never let them go.

Hello DW, Great poem! I liked this, so very much! It is a touchy, feely poem and is definitely so full of feelings and memories that people can really relate to. Almost everyone had a corner that was close to them, that they travelled past or hung out on, on a daily basis. And, some still do. Well! People in the city anyway.

I have not thought about my old corner in many years and the things that happened there. Thanks for the feelings and memories, letting me hang out on that special corner again.
