Daily Prompt: Memory

I posted this a while ago, but wanted to update it to include it in the Daily Prompt.
“Which good memories are better — the recent and vivid ones, or those that time has covered in a sweet haze?”
Although it’s not clear whether vivid, newer memories or time-stained distant ones are better, I think this post shows how good memories can be. I hope you like it.

Come,
walk with me,
these dark and dusty halls
of memory.

Breathe,
remembered scent,
of perfume lightly misting
treasured skin.

Tones,
familiar music,
we danced in spinning circles
round the room.

Clear,
laughter ringing,
shattering the silence of
misery’s hold.

Peace,
arresting quiet,
the sound of passing breath
in gentle slumber.

Lost,
forever wandering,
through dark and dusty halls
of memory.
