Trailing Memories

there was a tear in her

coat pocket and

nickles

and

quarters

and

keys

fell out leaving a trail of

lost items behind

she wondered if there

might be a similar tear

in her brain trailing

names

and

dates

and

recent

memories

the pocket could be

patched but she wasn’t

so sure

about

the

brain

  1. Oh my God.. emotions fully experienced are the
    glue of loving.. crying .. fearful.. and all
    memories in between.. to lose
    emotion is same as heart..
    or expressing that as spirit..
    and without heart and spirit
    expressing now the soul
    dies a lonely
    death as
    life..
    HOPE
    IS EMOTION
    AND POSSIBLE
    AGAIN.. AS WELL..:)
