Memories

Digging my memories,
I find nothing but
darkness clawing at
the flesh of my mind.




My heart warped,
My inside dying
with intense pain.
Unable to repress
unrelenting tears.

This cannot go on,
Life has to move on;
I must burn them
and live off the ashes!

    'This cannot go on,
    Life has to move on;

    and live off the ashes! '

    A good poem. A depressing situation that ends on a high note. Good work.

    Regards
    Ron

    Deep, Koyel, yet burning with hope - I especially liked the defiant ending.

    Like the legendary Sphinix, which emerged from its ashes! Lifes force, - that
    'elan vital ', as the French philosopher Bergson called it, remains supreme!
    Life continues to exert itself against all odds through 'creative evolution '!
    Good poetry Koyel!

    A very tender expression. But a big brutal reality. I recommend this poem
    and I also recommend the author read my poem called ASHES.
