Memories

A Poem by wordman



In the misty waters

of my mind,

i reminisce of the hallowed,

memories that i left behind.

 

Once as vivid

as night and day

now only misty memories

slowly fading away

 

Fading away

like a gentle breeze

on a summers day

but it seems everything fades away

 

Even those

hallowed memories

of me and you,and the feelings,

that we once knew...

However we try, can never recreate the moment which becomes a memory and after little longer fades away. Lovely short and sweet composition.

Having produced an epic poem known as Seasons of Black September then Shadow of Dys within my first collection -- I will give you some insight about the WritersCafe era before the poetry became more dominate here. During the era I first introduced the namesake roster -- two of them came from here as Tabloid Purposes IV a few also emerged here too. A lot of the writers have cult followings and seen a blind eye from the industry factions. If you never tried writing a short story, don't knock it. The piece you reviewed from the pastor was no poem but a narrative journal. Study anthology publications because that's been the print platform for short stories for years. I never published short poems in publications but seen an epic poem in the pages of a literary journal where two of them are in circulation. The reason one is a historic document; the publisher is an illustrator and an author himself. I gripe because way too many poets and not enough journalists.

I like how you described the memories as "fading away like a gentle breeze" because while it's sad it doesn't seem hopeless just something that happens to us and we accept it. So overall love the poem

It is what it is as they say. I find myself forgetting many things these days. I actually tried to pull up the name of my first love, which was always at the front of the brain. But it took a minute to remember him. I guess our brains get crowded and maybe it is a cleansing to free up space sometimes. Or at least that's what I choose to imagine lol. An excellent thought put to poetry!

Thankyou but always on the run 🌹
I have a very mixed emotional response to this. There is definitely the overriding sense of acceptance, which you show as natural and inevitable. This is a depressing reality, as lovely memories are lost, but also makes me feel as though life is just carrying on and the memories are constantly being replaced and the loss of some is healthy, rather than obsessing over the past and wishing you were in a better time that you can't return to.

Everybody knows what a poem means and a day later they know it means something else. I know something that won't change and that's the sound and feel of this poem. Tomorrow it will sound just as sweet and feel just as good.

thank you for that kind review,thanks
i am happy to know that this poem describes the steps towards moving on, and it is really true that not all memories deserved to be kept and treasured, there will come a time that it has to be thrown away and be forgotten.
