Triggers, Moments and Memories

TriggersTriggers;
like fires dancing flames,
burning a hole in the black.
Leaves behind painful scars,
forever seared in my brain.

Moments;
frozen in time eternal,
etched in stone and not forgotten.
A remembrance of what is past,
burns hot in the infernal.

Memories;
from the darkness will come,
slapping our hearts with regret.
Forever lost of what once was,
voices push until you’re numb.

Triggers;
out of nowhere appear,
to sidetrack our simple lives.
Things once laid to rest,
still rattle things we hold dear.

What triggers you? What moments are remembered? What memories linger?
