new poem

Another Fire Blazing Hot With Memories

Memories I am burning
memories I no longer need to keep.

I thought I would sift through their lingering ashes some day
I know I won’t
I know I don’t need them
really, I never did.

Memories of moments I never quite processed
ideas I never let go of
people I wanted to love but couldn’t
people who wanted to love me and somehow managed to do so.

The fire is dramatic and sad and refreshing
all at the same time
I am growing emotionally
one blue flame at a time.

Memories I am burning
Memories I no longer need to keep.

Life journeys on…
