Nostalgic Feels

Nostalgic Feels

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental scribbles... Just writing to get it out.

"
~ some things are best left unsaid ~

The nostalgia hits while I go down those memory lanes, your voice bounces off the edgy corners of the drunken state of my mind and I try to shake it off; 

appearing least bothered by your absence in my life but the constant presence of you in my brain haunts me, 

slowly creeping in, overshadowing like an eclipse to which there seems no dawn ~

My falsified hopes give in to the hurt pride I still feel and that dusted, rusty ego I so held on to sweeps away... 

a lightning bolt, as I cover my eyes from those blinding memories of you --- 

   ~ some things are best left unsaid ~

This is one of the most articulate things I've read of yours so far! The way you describe the details of how it feels is very relatable. "Appearing least bothered" -- so true about the obsessive mind grinding! "Dusted, rusty ego" -- nice play on word sounds! You SHOW us how the tortured mind grinds.

Thank you, BG. I'm glad I was able to convey that feeling.

I'm completely convinced that your experimental scribbles capture my attention far more than your thought out, "perfected" ones do. Is that wrong? Oh well.

Yumna, so many can relate to this and you blended self disgust and undesired memories perfectly. I adore this writing. Definitely a 100/100.

Lovely memories can often be tainted by ones absence. A very tragic and heartbreaking piece. Still wonderfully written!

You're welcome Yumna
Beautiful words that tear at the writer's heart and mind. But, clinging onto a branch can often cause a fall... what then, dear friend. As you recently mentioned to me, tis wise to move on, lesson learned. Please try and try to look in another direction.

Why not enjoy the memories and the pleasures of the experience? I realise that this writing accurately reflects how many people feel, but what is past cant be altered, so why not think of it positively - as a learning experience at the very least?

Memory Lane is fraught with pitfalls and quicksand...your lovely, lyrical poem
eloquently describes the dangers therein. I agree with you wholeheartedly that "some things are best left unsaid." Well-Done!

Thank you for your lovely words here. Truly appreciate it :)
either the heart or the brain...seems as if one of them never forgets....we can cover the eyes, but will still remember...Oedipus blinded himself...but then saw more clearly in his mind than ever----he probably wished he could take the brooch and gouge his memory out of his head.
