Lost of Touch

by Alex Penuelas   Feb 18, 2018

Sometimes it hurts
To reconnect with those
That you have lost contact with
Many years ago.

Because sometimes,
No matter how much you try,
Some fires can no longer
Be rekindled.

Sometimes the memories are
Preserved best when they
Remain as such.

Sometimes it is just best
To allow nostalgia to hold the reins,
As opposed to reopening scabs and scars.
