The light breeze brushing the skin,
Eyes staring out the window at nothing,
The hum of the city that is a hum no more,
The ears escaped to seek sounds of shores,
There is no noise in the thoughts that came,
A remark on the irony of time is made,
The pictures are old, faces in them are young,
A wonder as to whom those faces now…[Read more]
A memory stays,
it never goes astray,
it’s like a curse,
haunting you day by day,
when you look in the past,
you will see,
what should have been.
Like many things in life,
we all wilt away,
but not our memories,
we live them..
day by day.
Made to wonder,
What I wanted of life,
What it wanted if me,
Wanting more is good,
Appreciating what is had is too.
Lost in thought of what will happen,
It may be contemplated upon,
Letting the thought control one is futile,
Time occurs as a series of wins and loses.
A mess of living things.
On the edge of remembrance,
A photograph I…[Read more]
I remember when you could walk down the street without seeing people seemingly talking loudly to themselves. The joys of Bluetooth – the way to make yourself seem as crazy as everybody else…
If I close my eyes long enough and think back hard enough, I could almost remember a time when things were easy. Almost close enough to hold, I can still taste it, a time when things were fun. And then my eyes fly open and I realize it wasn’t a memory, it was only a dream.
memories often consume our minds and trick us into confusing the past with the present. sometimes, the memories we long for the most slowly wither away as time spirals into the future. for me, my memories are an escape to let go of reality and forget about my current issues for a little while.
I think I remember what happiness feels like. A sense of peace and joy. I think I remember it.
If not, I’m sure I can remember a time when I did remember it. It just feels, so… distant. Like it may not have actually happened.
I’m sure it did though. I’m sure I’ve been happy before. I think.
Birthdays were never great days for me, and I appreciated how you didn’t celebrate my birthday the actual day it was on, or how you didn’t turn it into a giant thing. Just a simple night over at your house. It’s one of my favorite memories by far, I’ve spent hours burning each image and detail permanently into my mind.
You got me one of the best…[Read more]
I see the fear
It hides in her eyes
It’s comfortable there
There it is fed,
Every now and then
It crawls out her mouth,
Push it back in
Lock it up tight
The prison she’s become.
They sat close on the floor, he held her hand… Hearing her discomfort, her problems, his heart melted like gold, his heart shattered into pieces like glass, it sunk to the deepest depths of the ocean of shared grief… He understood her words, wished he could do something to make it all go away, like a fairy tale… But alas, this wasn’t one. Her tea…[Read more]
Hello my friend,
We meet again,
Just a smile to greet each other,
Then the catching up on life begins,
I didn’t realize when we went from life to talking about life,
Running down memory lane,
Like lifelong friends we talk of things like we’re old men.
A sense of comfort seeps in,
As you allow me to be me,
Never asking me to be who you’d want me to…[Read more]
