Reminiscence

20180911_124625
I have forgotten lots of things
just like anyone else

forgetting is as much part of
my life as remembering

it dies unexpectedly without
warning and without reprieve.

of all the memories I have
meeting you was the only can’t forget

it’s embedded in my heart
you always stir it back into life again

like a timeless rhythm of my daily life
as I peer through time again.

  4. I really like this piece. I feel like this is something my one character in my story would think or write down when she grows up. (She is only six years old. This level of reminiscing is a bit too mature for her.)

  6. Fascinating poem with a sense of nostalgia! I loved the line about how forgetting is as crucial as remembering. I find this to be true for me. No one can love you nor can hurt you quite like family can. There are times when it’s best to let bygones be bygones; especially if a particular argument or careless thought is affecting the relationship. Excellent, Mich! I also am intrigued by the photo.
