Just a Memory
Looking at the memory
of what it should have been.
Dusting away the cobwebs,
making sure things are left clean.

Nothing to look back on.
No future in this empty space.
Time for a fresh start
with someone else in your place.

Somehow you don't notice
the hole within my heart.
Somehow you don't care
how we tore each other apart.

Trying to pick up the pieces
of all the shattered glass.
Just a jigsaw puzzle
thrown onto the grass.

Time is not a healer
when patterns aren't replaced.
Memories can not fade
when bitterness is all you taste.

It's peaceful now
as one more thing is let go.
Another abusive memory
and the stronger I grow.

" Time is not a healer when patterns are not replaced". I love that line! Maybe that is why time doesnt heal all wounds because we need something to replace that wound with? Very emotional poem and well written!

Helen, this is so sad and yet there is a silver lining to it as well. The difficulty of letting go is eased by the gaining of strength as time passes. Excellent writing and very deserving of the award, congratulations to you!  Henry

It takes time for a broken heart to mend, the road to recovery can be long but in the end you can be a stronger person.
Comment By: PremiumVizualEnsemble on February 22, 2007 05:14:00 PM Report
You write with a golden pen dear lady. This is tearful yet inspirational

and such a healing write. To let go certainly can cause great pain, but the healing always seems to come sooner or later. Great write!.

Sometimes letting go can be the hardest thing of all, but can also be the most healing thing of all. In instances like this that you've described here, it seems that the healing will only begin once there's distance and time between the ones that are involved.

Very sad and vivid write...You've done a fantastic job, Helen.

Hugs my dear friend...

Glata
