A POEM A MONTH

 

Tablo reader up chevron

february - MEMORIES.

for me.

 

 

 

 

you die with your memories

unless you write them

to recount your chronicle

of resurfacing moments

 

 

the mind is wilfully ignorant of fate

we lead purposeless lives

but we still reminisce

 

 

but take away one day

one friend

 

 

and suddenly, forgetting felt like dying

january - CHANGE.

for monica.

 

 

everyday a new ride

but the brain is unwilling to play

the wicked game of seek then hide

continues on replay

 

it creeps up your spine

by surprise

every turn

matures the victim of a new demise

 

like locusts feeding on bone marrow

glaciating your insides

offbeat for this time of year

 

the head is still catching up on what the heart knows

refute refuse repeat replenish

routine is futile

and fall backs another blemish

 

quietly put

the heart beats sad

the brain speaks lies

to convince change is bad

for you.

 

 

 

 

to be truly kind

 

is about consistency

 

one can’t be select
