~ Parallel ~

I enjoy creating short stories, poetry and prose. I write a weekly history column called "Vintage Views", published each Sunday.

Sometimes I live in a parallel world,

a place that is safe with nostalgia deep,

I visit this world when in need,

and most nights when I sleep.

It is where I find my inspiration, to live the life, I do live,

I also find some compassion, the ability to understand and forgive.

My parallel world is colorful, where warmth and contentment abound,

there are never any regrets there, nothing negative to be found.

I like to visit my parallel world, when stress and frustration does pursue,

it’s something I find comforting, it’s just something that I do.

Until my days do conclude, it is my fond memories I do keep,

sometimes I live in a parallel world,

a place that is safe with nostalgia deep.
