On and Off Memories

On and Off Memories

A Poem by Andrew Nelson Stewart
"

Diving randomly into your life about childhood friends, places that were home but forgot yet remembered again.

"
On and Off Memories

        Crying to Laugh thinking it's okay to throw fire into a abandon reservoir when it was only a an answer to respond to many questions of "why steer clear and only too calm my pain like a tranquilizer in many different ways?" 

Been scared of causes outnumbering outcomes from which I must feel 
by choosing from reminiscing blind memories 

   I've been strong through countless highways that doesn't change like the name of the your first pet or old-fashioned first kiss hidden as a secret and yet you were traveling through this road without being aware of it's name or even though you weren't steering. How can I not forget the way how the fear of heights that not only sink and flood speed limits in my childhood mind but caught curious eyes looking back through review mirrors?" 

 It was spoken in mother's eyes of turning a new leaf but how it was a place so beautiful to even describe through stories to greeting eyes with such an impact they knew it was something that made you hit the brake -petal on life for awhile but knew time always moved forward,

 As I always did watching carefully each tear dropping from a mother's eye crying alone.

    WE break the same witnessing it all, hiding in a tree just to get attention from the sunsets as it decreases nothing but a painkiller to the human-spirit as all grown up to say; when looking through review windows waiting for your favorite song to play.

when looking through review windows waiting for your favorite song to play.

Love this line, rather we look back or not, it's still an emotional ride we take.
All we can see are all our past regrets, things we've done among good memories as well.
This is really good. Enjoyed this write

Good morning Andrew from Michigan.
"WE break the same witnessing it all, hiding in a tree just to get attention from the sunsets as it decreases nothing but a painkiller to the human-spirit as all grown up to say; when looking through review windows waiting for your favorite song to play."
I liked and I understood the above lines. I believe we fall into the place we suppose to. Not destiny, maybe good or bad luck? Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry and your thoughts.

I'll tell my only rearview mirror story. For 44 years of my life I always cried when I had to leave my grandma's and come back home. When she died I went by the farm for one last look, and feared the drive down the long lane. To my suprise I didn't cry, because the bond holding me there was gone.

I've looked through the rearview mirror often...
I see a lot of life in that glass, and life pokes up behind me...
knocks me into the other lane. And those memories often put my foot on the brake in new relationships...
not going down that road again, I would say to myself...even as I drove on.
and this poem also made me think of my first kiss...
Jean Verklen back in grade school...I learned fast, she was a good teacher.
thanks for the memories here...
I am pulling up along side you now, Andrew...
I'm the blue Yaris.

I really liked this poem, it made me really think, it's sad in a way that is nice if that makes any sense. Bittersweet maybe? But I also picture someone rising from the ashes and starting anew.

I have to say it. Your writing appears to have some misspellings, mistaken words, extra words, and just basic abstracts that don't follow logical thinking. It's kinda tough to read you. I had to read this twice to get a handle on the main points you're trying to make. My guess: random childhood memories, such as riding in a car with the family & others are looking in the mirror to glance at whatever people in the backseat are doing, something like that. I can catch some inroads to understanding, but I have to say it -- I find myself wanting to correct some of your simple word glitches so this reads much more clearly & easily. I don't review in order to correct stuff, so I won't do this, but I think you have interesting ideas to share, but the mechanics of your writing might keep readers from appreciating what you're sharing. I kinda remember you mentioning that you prefer to do stream of consciousness writing becuz you get tangled up in the task of editing. I understand that, so I'm trying not to say you need to change & clean up your writing a bit. I'm just trying to show you how this process looks from both sides, you doing what you need to do & me trying to find a way to read it harmonious to the both of us (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
