I have experienced many losses in my life. This is what I experience every time.

Memories, and the Pain They Bring

October 22, 2020

PROMPT: The Unseen

Throughout your life,
You make many memories.

Those memories can be good,
Or they can be bad.

But no matter what,
You always remember them in the end.

You always remember them when death is on your doorstep.


When someone you love dies,
The first thing you do is remember.

You remember all of the memories you shared with them.

The good,
and the bad.

The times of strength,
and times of weakness.


The memories of them,
are haunting.

They remind you of what you have lost.

Of what you can no longer have.

And that is worse,
Then the loss itself.


Some memories,
Could be captured.

But you can never capture the emotions behind them.

The emotions that follow after a death.


Sometimes these emotions resurface.

The memories show themselves once again.

And every time,
It brings joy and ultimate sorrow.
