Twist My Arm Now

Picture perfect

is the past

in so far

as you can trust

memories, thoughts,

emotions too

from a time

no longer yours.

Still feels better

to look behind

and see misshapes

than to be blind

frozen with fear

every time

you look beyond

the here and now.

Twist my arm now

why don’t you,

with your drive

to start anew.

Can’t stop the jitters

can’t hide the fear

but still together

we will steer

ourselves into

whatever feels

picture perfect

as yesteryear.

Or close enough, anyway.
