0029 The Past Is Past - Then It Returns

You asked me
to destroy
all your love-letters
as if that
would free you -

from what?

I wish
I had read them
once again
before I did;
that would be
some sort of
sweet revenge -

for what?

Clinging to memories, and/or destroying the physical ones...makes one try to figure out what the heck we are doing, doesn't it? Good thinking, for me, like a dog with a bone.
You been reading my mind again M? This piece hits home, in an accepting kind of a way. And is, therefore, good. :) t x
Nice one, Michael...succinct, barely sentimental, and loaded with wisdom. Raynette
We can never be free from memories though can we Michael? And would we want to be? Wonderful write here. Helen x
