Message from Writer

Words are very powerful. You could either make someone or break them. Always be aware of what you say and how you say it. I believe words are from the heart, not the brain.

No matter what people say about your writing, if it's a passion of yours, just you keep writing and improving.

Only Memories

Summer comes and goes,
winter drifts past us,
spring sails by,
autumn blows a kiss,

The years fly by,
we're getting older,
life is making our decisions,
we're growing apart,

Memories float away,
experiences locked up,
our diary lost somewhere amongst the clouds,
we've taken different routes,

But as I stroll along that long, narrow path,
I remember you,
the smell of fresh soil and pretty flowers,
makes me think of you,

I remember those special days,
walking along here,
holding hands with you,
lost in our own world,

The memory of you holding me close,
comes to mind,
remember that sweet kiss?
I'll never forget,

What we had was special,
but now it's gone,
we're torn apart,
life decided we had to end,

Here I am,
strolling down the same path,
only this time,
I'm alone.

What I'm left with,
is only memories.

    I'm not sure what happened with you (from reading both mia's and birthdaycandles's comment), but I do hope you're alright. I know you've been inactive for a long while now, but I wanted to give you my thanks. WhispersofGray, I recently achieved a milestone of 101 followers, and I wanted to say thank you to you. You were kind enough to leave a comment and a like on one of my pieces, a solidarity piece of mine, and it certainly made my day. Your kind words help shape me into the writer I am today, and I cannot thank you enough for that. It may have just been a click of a button to you, but it was my everything, especially in a time when I didn't feel too confident in my writing. Thank you once again, and I don't know what you're up to or where you are, but I hope everything is well with you :)
    (Also, I'm doing a dust jacket, so if you have any questions, send them my way!)

    This poem is so sweet and lovely. It's just brilliantly written and the descriptions are so poignant and prominent. Your narrative in this piece is a masterpiece and I love the simplicity and gorgeousness of it all. It's so nostalgic and calm, just reading it gives me a sense of serendipity. Gloriously written :))

    Hello! Your piece "Only Memories" captures the beautiful but fading experiences we've had that leaves us yearning for more while appreciating what we had. It's a bittersweet moment and you capture that feeling of past beauties so well in your descriptive details and flowing creative language. This was a lovely piece to read. Please keep writing!
