Black and White

by Neil Chatterton

Conflicted emotions
The date draws near
Butterflies
Replaced by angst
Foreboding memories
Of times before
Not so long ago
That we are in
Black and White.

Or is worry
For nothing
As Springs rushes
Towards me
Aching to embrace
Recapture
Feelings from before
When laughter and gaiety
Swirled around us
Yet never quite settled.

Who knows best
Modesty or
Reticense
For both exist
Deep within me
Yet which
Prevails
Is it your choice?

As you re-open that door
Long closed
Undisturbed feelings
Shake loose
Like a bear
Awakening
Seeking
Renewal and redemption
Or just
Peace.
