Sometimes, a writer simply must write. It is with that in mind, then, I wish you all a happy October, a wonderful autumn and choose to institute a tradition in my blog that I used to do regularly in my long-hand journal: the Poem of the Month. Every month, I'll either write an original poem or post one of my old ones. I hope that if you read, you enjoy.
Without further ado, October's poem:
What drives a heart to remember
what's gone can so eas'ly enthral
when all in each waking thought that you want
is not to remember at all?
Why do I cling to the mem'ries
Can it be that I want to return
to all the pain and the trouble it caused
despite all the lessons I've learned?
Impossible to relinquish
my life, my family all
the joy I've come to know since I forgot
the things I don't want to recall.
