And She Cannot Forget

December 20, 2020

FREE WRITING

Broken wings still remember
how to fly
in a world of hunters
and gunshots.

Cracked cups still remember
tea parties with the hatter
who was quite mad
and the queen who was
never who she wanted to be.

Torn books will never forget
the soft caress of fingers
brushing their pages
as if they were friends and not
inanimate objects covered in ink.

Thrown out dolls will never forget
the little girl who named them
and put them to bed before
she became older and dressed
like she was the doll.

Forgotten poetry doesn't regret
being written before being thrown
in a basket riddled with diamonds
cut into the soft metal to join
all the rest who weren't good enough.

Shattered ceramic doesn't regret
standing tall in the entryway
of the great kings and queens
before being broken by invaders
who trampled them into the soft earth.


And she does not hate you
despite how many tines you trampled
her like ceramic
or
thrown her own like poetry before 
trying to look back

And she does not detest you
even though you threw out the dolls
and told her to dress up in
pretty gowns
or
when you ripped her spirit
because she was not the soft,
sweet thing you remembered

And she does not ignore you
although she seemed quite mad
after you cracked the cups in anger
or
when you bound her wings and
told her not to fly because
it was dangerous

She might forgive but she cannot forget
because she is all the things she is-
Dangerous
Powerful
Strong
Beautiful
-because you did this to her
So no.
She cannot forget
even though her forgiveness flows like the river
to the sea

    Wow, wow, wow!! This is beautiful! I love the personification and the scary yet uplifting end, with the comparisons.... it’s beautiful! Great, great, great job!!
    Rohan’s Defender talks about you a lot, and I LOVE her, so I thought you’d probably be amazing too :). Also, I did one of your old prompts: What does sunlight taste like? (I also found out about it from Eden) If you want to read it (since you created the prompt), here it is: Taste the Sunlight https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/191375/version/387565
    I hope I did you justice XD!

    So beautiful, amazingly put together. I love how you first introduce the metaphors, each of which are stories on their own, and then bring in the girl and how she connects to each of these things.

    A-W-E-S-O-M-E can describe only 1/100th of this poem.... ^U^
    It starts with excellently threaded personifications and at the end when you connect them ... Wow!
    Great job!
