One Poem by Alexander Garza

Slow Motion December

I’ll always remember slow motion December.
I’ll always recall warm winter halls,
When youth turned ash from a slow burning ember.

The drinks took our kiss, a memory dismembered.
The action seemed fit for the warm winded fall.
I’ll always remember slow motion December.

The night set fire to your eyes for another,
While I sat in silence waiting for the call,
When youth turned ash from slow burning embers.

The short-lived songs on the radio player
Find homes adorned in our minds, on the wall.
I’ll always remember those slow motion Decembers.

The fog dissipated upon forgetting the remembered.
The action seemed fit for the short-winded fall.
When youth turned ash from a slow burning ember.

Fate manipulation of our path, in our favor;
Falling back to earth was never quite a fall.
I’ll always remember slow motion Decembers,
When youth turned ash from slow burning embers.
