THE CANDY MAN

A meeting on the high road, or a face in the crowd

She thought of him often, she just never said the words out loud.

Close to her heart she kept his memory tuck away until a spontaneous stroll down memory lane.

Lost in a time where nothing was the same.

It had been years but she had never forgotten his face as she wondered down memory lane.


In her mind he was still the same


He was lollipops and lipgloss a taste sweeter than licorice etched in her brain.


Beautiful unforgotton moments retained inside

A lonely letter scattered with words from his hand


A reminder of the teenager before he became a man.


Although, lost in his memories she may stand


Forever in her heart he would live on, her Candy Man.

SHOW ME THE NINETIES: #Writing this new project set in the nineties is so interesting! Finding evidence is the hardest thing to do! Before the time when the #Internet was a major thing and mobile phones were digitally advanced evidence is limited. Searching for old #images brings up new images attempting to re-create the retro-style. . SO, MY LOVELY PEOPLE . I am looking for people willing to share their images of the nineties! . The picture does not have to show your face! It could be Nanas old cat or your grandads allotment, if it was taken in the nineties it is relevant. . Your images will only be used once in an article on WWW.WORD-BERRY.COM! . If you are interested DM ME. . © W O R D B E R R Y .
