Remembrances that damage


When you now think about that person

all you remember is a vacant place.

You don’t remember the beautiful memories

but all those words they uttered

when you were trying to heal.

That’s when you know that people come and go from your life,

but some paint you in the colours of your choice,

some in the colours they wanted to see you in

some leaves you like a canvas unpainted.

The one that vacates from your life

without giving you remembrances

is the one you cloud you should never be beneath.

Don’t come near they’ll destroy you with words

that will be awful to comprehend,

damages you at the same moment.

-Riya Shah
