Heart-felt memories – TB

15 Apr

Words too explicit
Cast shadows over faint glows.
I describe a place,
A motion,
I mention a person,
I relive a moment.
That smell, those colours,
That inglorious sound ringing out.
It’s transcribed into words,
Uttered when I converse, smirks
Reflected in the darks of my eyes.
And the moment is diluted
When it could have been locked away in my heart.

    So many things hide in our heart and sometimes they come out unknowingly.

    Aah, the things better left unsaid..nice one!

    Indeed. Some memories choose to come out rather than stay inside, even though we’d rather they stay inside.

    Can we ever completely put the lid on these things…

      Such a thoughtful piece.. perhaps some things are better left unsaid.
      Beautifully executed 🙂

    Yes, hard to know sometimes whether the expression will enhance or dissipate the feeling.

    An interesting thought….a moment being diluted through giving it words……..either that, or captured forever, perhaps.

    To say or not to say…

    that is the question

    if you are not prepared
    to suffer the consequences
    then don’t

    Liking some the phrases and words you’ve used to capture the diluting of that moment ~ shadows, inglorious ringing, reflections in the dark … excellent piece

    Oh interesting, the memory held dear then lessened by speaking of it. Yes… this happens! The urge to talk about it is so strong, but then it’s released.

    Sometimes silence is golden…a powerful perspective on treasured memories
