Memories

Some memories are better left behind,

to not disturb the settling dust,

to leave confined

in dark recesses of the mind

those things we fear and cannot trust,

those memories will make us blind.

~

Some memories are better to keep alive,

to bathe in them when feeling sad

to just revive

when feeling anguish and deprived

or missing things we never had,

those memories to keep we strive.

H.O.
