Writing Prompt: Behind Me the Door Slammed...

This is a piece I created during a five minute writing prompt exercise given during an Amherst Writers and Artists Method Writer's Workshop. 

There was a time. 
There was a place. 
There was a person. 

Smiles and tears came anew.
The beginning, the end, overdue. 
At times I crawled, I stood, I flew. 
So much a memory, mental residue. 

Here is the time. 
Here is the place.
Here is the person. 

Behind me the door slammed.
