It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Long Ago

The pages of
       remember when,
       one time, and
       long ago
Now just a memory

The pages
       faded,
       cracked, and
       wrinkled
Now just a memory

Each one
A reminder of
       a treasure,
       unbearable pain,
       a touch from the grave
From all the way back.

Each one
A warning
       not to go there again
       to leave it behind
       to try harder
From all the way back.

Each one
A note of
       the highs and lows
       the ups and downs
       the paths taken
From all the way back.

Page by page
       a torture
       a sensual experience
       a scent
       a song
       a taste
       a wrong chord
       a world of experience
A letter sent to your future self.
