If We Could Turn Back The Clock.

by Steven Beesley   Jun 7, 2012

Do you remember the days
of you and I and
of our friends gathered
all around?

I remember the happiness
joy and laughter that echoed
as we shared our
common interests in the
written word.

But then there were
some differences and
animosity enthused.

Much to the detriment
of our group, misunderstandings
widened and so did a rift in

Wishing is all I
can dream for, that we may
all turn back the

To be together
once more in a
better time and
a better place.

Where our friendships
are not severed or lost
and where we may all
smile once more;
to enjoy the pleasure of each
other's company.

  • I can certainly relate to this piece -

    Animosity destroys groups of friends.
    If one friend were to leave, the group's whole dynamic is altered; irreparable without that person.
    Turns out it's a lot easier to hate than forgive.

    If only we could turn back the clock...

    A well penned piece. 5/5

    Oh how I can relate to this so much! Over time, friendships just seem to fade away, it's a shame and I do wish I could just turn back the clock and somehow change it. Oh well, everything happens for a reason. A great write! 5/5
