Unwanted Memories

by Brittany Ottmo   Nov 18, 2013


Stored in several boxes
And sorted in their own file
Are those unwanted memories
That have been there for a long while.

Those memories of disaster
Are put away for good
Stashed in a dark corner
I wouldn't open them even if I could.

They may not be in my thoughts
But they are real to reality
Some I don't remember
But that is my mind protecting me.

I have come to realize
That my brain knows just what to do
When it comes to harming my heart
It jumps forward and saves it too.

So maybe I have doubted
The conflict between my heart and head
My head does right
When it comes to making my heart go dead.
