Fading Memories

Footprints in the Sand

MEMORIES

by Jeb Bensing

The memories are imprinted on my mind,
Just like footprints in the sand,
Washed away with an evil hand.
Forever gone in a destitute land,
Always searching for what is mine,
Having to realize,
Decadence is never kind.

The rain gently lands on my face.
Some events are on the tip of my tongue,
They have a simple taste.
Some are worth remembering,
Others are just a waste.

I close my eyes,
My mind thinks with all of its might,
Vague images come to sight.

It can take a touch or,
A simple smell to rekindle that thought,
You once knew so well.

The memories can come and go,
Just like those prints in the sand.
Slowly fading away,
Out of reach from your hand.
No longer able to reminisce,
Getting lost in search of those thoughts,
That you have sadly missed.

      Thank you. That poem was hard to express. Emotions may fade, but they never truly heal.
