When memories are no longer shared with anyone else, is their quality altered?  How are they different from  fragments of a dream?

One of the empty railway stations was East Dulwich, late on Tuesday evenings.

Dream Fragments Redrawn

Neither resisting nor insisting a nervous leg, cautiously caressed...
His eager hand slides, welcoming she guides it up to cup and clasp her breathless breast...
A longed-for kiss, instead an abyss, the embrace of a dead fish in the snow...
And then the Greek goddess, whose dark eyes said “yes” but decorum told me “no”.

Impressions on a mind amazed.  In time all shall be erased.

Don’t be fooled.  The silent passenger’s enthralled, crazy captivating curious communion crafter.
Infectious joy emanates, hope radiates through and throughout her simple songs and laughter.
Bright and twinkling eyed, the barefoot bride, determinedly devoted despite the distance.
Delighted dancer to the mirror’s view who melted my existence.

Impressions on a mind amazed.  In time all shall be erased.

Although the music storms, too many platforms have meant waiting at an empty railway station.
Perpetually paper-clipped to a lifelong script of John Bowlby’s abandonment replication.
So is this it?  Just one more exhibit stuck stiff in an unvisited musical museum?
Propped-up, pristine, proud, larger than life and loud, one of many but no-one gets to hear or see them.

Impressions on this mind amazed.  In time all this too shall be erased.
