Memories…


Memories. Lots of Memories…
Memories Happy.
Memories Sad.
Memories that drive me mad.

Memories of homemade birthday cake.
I drift where my Memories take…

Memories of delight over birthday gifts.
Memories of friendship.
Memories of rifts.

Memories of growing up.
Memories of not growing old.
Memories of fairies and fables that Aesop told.

Memories of success.
Memories of tear.
Memories of hope.
Memories of fear.

Memories of tough troubled teens,
Abandoning castles,
Forsaking queens.
Memories of chimerical dreams…

Memories of meeting You.
Memories of knowing Myself,
like I never knew…

Memories of dusty Mays.
Memories of monsoon showers.
Memories of Gold autumn leaves.
Memories of the December flower.

Memories of Love.
Memories of lies.
Memories of memories,
to forget, my heart tries.

Memories of callow youth.
Memories of mellow womanhood.
Memories gloomy.
Memories good.

Memories of cramped confines of guilty minds.
Memories of precious loss.
Memories of priceless finds.

Memories playing truant with my heart.
Memories I still remember,
that long were gone, I thought.

Memories of a guileless face,
Memories of innocent eyes.
Memories of a genuine curve,
with bunny teeth peeping through the smile.

I look into the mirror,
it shows Me.
But I want it to show
A Happy Memory.

A Memory that I can take.
A Memory true, when Truth is Fake…

I blow the candles,
I cut the cake.
Another birthday dwindles
adding up a handful, to the Memory Lake.

Memories, writing down Life’s Stories.
of Young Birthdays
and Old Memories

I try figuring out…
Am I a Memory?
or the Memory of a Memory?

  1. I don’t know why but this one brought tears in my eyes.. And I’m sure I’ll have a good cry tonight- not now because I will store them until it gets all blurry.
    This part is THE best :-
    “I look into the mirror,
    it shows Me.
    But I want it to show
    A Happy Memory.”
    I love your writings, Pamela. Because they come from true heart, look real, as based on lived experiences. Great work .:)

    • Hey Maria!

      You are just such a sweetheart and so true to your promise.
      Love you dear for loving my writings.
      You are just out of the world sweetheart.

  2. I loved the last lines

    I try figuring out…
    Am I a Memory?
    or the Memory of a Memory?

    And the picture beautifully compliments these lines…super choice. Infact I am feeling like writing something basis this image…lemme see if it works.
