Memories

angel on Sep-10-2008

Memories…
Sometimes they creep up at you,
Quite unexpectedly.
Dragging you back to a place…
You wish you’d never return to.
Bittersweet memories…
Of a past long gone…
Memories that were once moments…
Bringing back old wounds…
And familiar pangs of regret…
Glimpses of people and places,
That you want to escape from…
Wishing you could just let go…
Wishing you could just be free…
Leave them all behind, forever…
But then you never really do forget…
Because they cling to you.
Until little reminders bring them back
To consciousness again…
And you feel the waves of nostalgia,
Washing over you…
Tears are threatening to fall…
Memories come in a stampeding rush.
Both the good ones and the bad…
But it’s the good ones that hurt more…
They’re the ones that stay longer…
They’re the ones you long for…
But the truth is…
That’s all they are now…
Just memories, floating in the wind…
Just memories…
