Places We've Been

I wrote this close to a year ago in observance of two lives intersecting at the most interesting points. It was almost as if these people were trading places, having started out their lives on completely opposite ends. They were going full circle, just in different directions.

It's just that kind of strange, misty, inspiringly mesmerizing moment where you would much rather just ponder and write in gritty nostalgia than actually go into the clear details of who, what, where, when and how, as one looks up, and he looks down. Once upon a time, she was looking down, but now she understands, and there was a time that he knew, but now he is forgetting.

Know what I mean?

Places We've Been


  1. Greetings Pixie,

    And with the wondrous words of your magical, thoughtful prose, I'm blessed to live in a world where no judgement is ever made.

    Thank you for your words, my Pixie friend.

    In magic and wonder, your way,

    Geoffrey :)

  2. I really love the contrast of the two people in this poem. And the funny thing about life is, a year from now, they may switch perspectives, maybe even more than once. Loved that closing line by the way.

    1. Thank you! You're right though. People are fickle creatures and change their minds all the time. I'm glad you liked the closing line. I wasn't sure about putting it by itself but really needed that melodramatic finality to end it.

  3. god, yes!
    even with fate, i think there are some places, half way, where our paths crossing each other. i really love your poem!

  4. So beautiful and so true! Love it

  5. Pixie... this so true... when people judge where others have been or are at for the moment... I want to remind them that they were there or could be there at any given moment...

  6. Wow! I love it, it's so captivating. <3
