Something

by Melpomene   Mar 13, 2015


I have

forgotten about you lately,
forgotten about the time-lapse.

There have been no tea light
memories of you, no language hidden
in what I've said. I had neglected
your arrival and departure,

departures and arrivals,

the departures.

    This poetess has such a very unique way of word expression. As if she has her own thumb print on every poem she writes.

    This poem just feels like the reader wrote it, it makes you feel related, close and leaves something inside you.

    The word choice and how they are picked aside of each other made this strong impact. Loved the title too, something..just something. Very smart.

    This is a tricky piece. I'm not sure how to interprete it but the sadness and "the not caring much" undertones within the lines are felt. What I think, it's that the author forgot mainly about the departures or at least tried to. The sense of what I get when I read the poem, it's that of a person having a conversation either with someone or just with herself.

    This piece reminded me of someone who no longer cares. It's like that someone whom this piece is directed at, left often which made the author feel perhaps alone? and at the same time, the distance made the author feel unattached from that someone whom this piece is directed at.

    So, slowly, the author is forgetting about that someone. It's sad when relationships don't work due to not investing enough time to each other. :(

    That's pretty much what I understand from reading this piece.
