“I don’t want you to be sad,” he said
But just look at what I can do with sadness…
Every single moment of our lives –
From the most exciting discoveries
To the second when your hearts both

(skip a beat)

At the same time –
Must always have the faintest outline of a teardrop
Because all of those moments
Must start dying slowly
From the instant they are conceived.

The bank of memories only provides copies of the original.

  1. Beautiful! It is funny how the mind works. All our memories, even those we remember the best, are still altered slightly, because that is how the mind works.

    Love your poetry!

    I hope you are well.

    Cheers! 😉

    1. Thank you! And yes – absolutely. I studied memory not too long ago, and it’s so unbelievably unreliable!

      I’m good, thanks – just trying to catch up on comments before I go to bed! I’m absolutely astounded you went through every post on here – I hope it helped your insomnia 😉 I’ll start catching up on those comments very soon, I promise.

      I hope you’re doing well too! x

      1. Memory is fun like that. Something that is supposed to remember, often configures things in its own way. Is that a new photo? Pretty awesome! ^_^

        Um, so yeah, I’m doing great! Thank you for asking! Heh, I read a bit, and insomnia and I are partners for life at the very least. 😉

        No worries, it was totally worth reading all of it! I wanted to catch up anyways, and this way I’m all caught up anytime you post something new as well. Glad you seem well. Hope you are actually well.

        Cheers! ^_^

        1. Definitely. It’s always disconcerting when you find out you remembered something wrong! And yes, thank you… I changed my hair colour so I thought I’d keep everyone updated 😉

          I’m glad you’re okay – I’m doing fine (honestly!), it’s way way past my bedtime but I need to catch up on a few comments before I’m allowed to sleep!

          1. Pshh! Sleep when you want to. Xp

            So awesome to hear from you though! I’m glad you are doing okay. I def dig the hair.

            I have many memories
            I know not how many are true
            Sometimes I get them all mixed up
            How about you?

            Cheers! ^_^
