UNWANTED THOUGHTS AND MEMORIES

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I Sit Alone
In The Silence
Of Another
Day Ending
In The Midst
Of A Darkening
Room

Shadows
Creeping
Onto The Walls
Chasing
The Light Away
As The Darkness
Slowly Blinds
My Eyes

Leaving Me
With Unwanted
Thoughts Of You
And Memories
I Should Destroy
Or Let Go Of
But Know
I Never Will

For They Are
The Ties
That Bind Me
To Yesteryears,
That Are Part Of
Who I Am

I Try To Keep
Rogue Memories
Confined
To The Deepest
Part Of My Heart
Chained And Restrained
From Interfering
With My Nows
And A New Life
That I Love

But True Love
Never Dies
It Just Lies In Wait
For An Unguarded
Moment
To Escape
Into A Memory
Or A Dream
In The Silence
Of A Night
Filled With Darkness
Where It Is Free
To Live Again
And Play
With Old Feelings
And Bring Tears
To My Eyes
Over What
Might Have Been
But Never Was

And So I Sit
In The Stillness,
Amid The Silence
Of A Darkened Room
And Let Old Memories
Run Around And
Play In My Head
For I Cannot
Stop Them
Nor Destroy Them
For They Are Still
A Part Of Who I Am
And Who I Was

The Tear Or Two
I Shed In Remembrance
Is A Small Homage I Pay
To Old Memories From The Past
And A Reminder Of The Love
And Life I Have In The Now
That I Am So Grateful For

Bittersweet Moments
As I Wait For Dreams
And Memories To End
As The Light Of Tomorrow
Brings A Happy Set Of Nows
Out Of The Darkness

    1. Yes, Sweet Lady!! I cannot tell you the thrill it is for me to have you dig up something that I have a very hard time believing that I wrote!!! I had to read this over twice and still think I must have written this in some type of trance!!! LOL!

      You bring me so much joy, Jeanne, by bringing up my works from the past and in the sweetest gesture and reward for me say to your followers, “Hey, look what I found!!” by reblogging it!!
      Are you hiding your wings, Dear Angel?
