Stale Memories - Poem by Lizzy Scott


Bottled up inside

Are the words I never said

The feelings that I hide,

The words you never read.

You can see it in my eyes,

Read it on my face:

Trapped inside are memories

Of the past I can’t replace.

With memories that linger—

Won’t seem to go away.

Why can’t I be happier?

Today’s a brand-new day.

Yesterdays are over,

Even though the hurting not.

Nothing lasts forever,

I must cherish what I’ve got.

Don’t take things for granted,

For soon it will be gone—

All you ever wanted

Of what you thought you’d won.

The hurt I’m feeling now

Won’t disappear overnight,

But some way, some how,

Everything will turn out right.

No more wishing for the past.

It wasn’t meant to be.

It didn’t seem to last,

So I have to set it free.
