A Renewed Encounter – Author Nolan P. Holloway Jr.


We have now become strangers

Bland with no seasoning

Not long ago we craved each other to exhaustion

Now when we talk rings hollow like a

empty drum in an abandoned warehouse

Uncared for and forgotten

Where are the feelings of longing?

Knowing of what we found in each other-

that which was missing in each of us

That tingling when we first began talking

Rhythmic conversation like a jazz session

Spontaneous and fluid-each note floating downhill

Remote connection fueled by passion

Blossoming into love-full bloom by summer

Then an unexpected a chill crept in

Freezing and choking out the flame of oneness

Real talk-moving back to the beginning

Anything to defrost the situation

Embracing the new as the next breath, the

promise of uncertainty of tomorrow

Which gives sober hope to being renewed to love once more
