A flashback of the senses. The duration of which is a lifetime or a nanosecond. The potency is to be determined and the frequency, well that depends on what your mind allows.
Moments are not based on performance,looks or eroticism. There lies an interlude of time, where all of the sudden a feeling catches and holds its place…and yes, the memories stays permanent, for as long as you wish.
Appreciate it for what it is. Savor it. Desire it…and then relive it. Over and over.

one part of a memory xo
When I was in DC a couple of weeks ago, I had lunch with an ex-lover. It had been over a year since we last saw each other. In reality, it is not that long a period of time but someone it felt like a decade.
I had fallen hard for him. I’m not ashamed to admit it. We had an intense affair for a year and then, it was over. The great “loves” of our lives follow a pattern, don’t they? In the moment, it feels so real and we never want that feeling to end- the desire, the need to grasp on and never let go. It is here that we come to the difference between love and lust. In love, it is the person we can’t/won’t live without, in lust, it is just the moment we crave to keep hold of.
And speaking of moments, just as there is a moment that you you realize this person is everything you seek, such is it that in another moment, it crystallizes that perhaps you were mistaken. As I sat across from him, listening to him update me on his life, I realize that the cliche ” everything happens for a reason.”
All beginnings have an ending.
