The Rewind

Quote of the day

Memories can be sad, but sometimes they can also save you.
-Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata

A story told backwards....let's start at the very ending..

The petals roll back in the vase.
The petals turn back into a flower.
The tears run back up her face.
Gibberish flowed back in her mouth.
Screaming “Go don't please"...

I put the flowers back in my hand…
It’s like a movie on rewind.

She put her hands back on her lover.
Her apartment doors open wider.
I step back out and closed it shut.
Walking in reverse, moving backwards.

The taxi cab opening.
I got back in and paid the fare.
And I say ‘Here right stop please’...

I’m thinking out loud 'Her see to wait can’t '...
Radio playing Whitney’s 'I will always love you' backwards...

Cab driver moving on reverse through the streets.
I stepped out back first and hailed a taxi.
Back downstairs, took off the shirt and tie.
The cologne spray went back in the bottle.
The towel flew back to my hands.
Shower door opening and closing...

Jumping back into bed slowly.
I stretch and watch the sun go down.

The clock went backwards from seven, to six,to five,to four.
And that's about the time the story begun.

That’s when the thought first came.
"Today fiance my to visit surprise..."
