they

Standard

they say there is no such thing as time travel

that there is no way to physically travel through space and time, to relive moments from the past

well i guess this they has never taken the 3 train

a mystical talisman that makes the minutes go in reverse and forces the calendar to move back its pages

they were never on the 3 train

which transports you to hazy summers and blizzards in winter

to the first time you held me

or played basketball in the park

to a place where there were only new beginnings and a fresh eye could gaze upon every building and sidewalk with wonder and excitement

if they had taken the 3 train

my shortness of breath

             pangs of anxiety

                      and fears of the sounds, colors, and fragrances  

                               would be understood

the bitter pill i swallowed two years too late

the calm and peace that is shattered when thinking of your face

i wish they had taken the 3 train

so an announcement could be made

to warn me of the emotions that would flood my wounded, fragile heart

briefly tipping me off balance again
