Memories I have of you

Bittersweet is some kind of sweet
Put to humans it says ambivalence
More like an uneasy relationship
One that switched like different seasons
With rain, hail, snow and bright sunshine

Some interpretations claim its confusion
Quick to point out numerous flaws
Enough to give me reason
To simply walk away and move on
Maybe in the midst of it all, forget
Act like nothing ever happened

I do remember and that’s not a problem
Sometimes I laugh, others I laugh harder
I just can’t help it, those were funny moments
Then I feel sad, horribly sad
I think of it all and look at myself
It’s not the same anymore
All the laughter turns into loud cries
My soul yearns I pass this phase

I’m told all things shall pass
With time I will be able to move on
As if there is something wrong
Psychoanalysts call it fixation
They say it’s some kind of maladaptive behavior
But to me it’s not like that
Those are just memories I have of you.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
