After I Go (Gargleblaster)

It happened
Quicker than a dream scatters
A glimpse of a dark face
Foreign and familiar
Burn of the long kiss
A hiss
Haunted by infinite memories
Of an invasion
Dark face
I retreat to that time
Before I stayed

My very first Gargleblaster in response to Yeah Write’s weekly prompt: “Should I Stay or Should I Go.”

    Yay! So sorry I didn’t get to read this until now…been an insane week. I love this piece. It is so very moody and evocative, and a stellar first Gargleblaster. Really glad you’re participating. Well done, my friend.

    I agree with the others, this is a tense/creepy/scary scene you’ve put in my mind — but that’s how powerful your words are! Great job on your first gargleblaster.
