Voluntary Amnesia

by mossgirl19   Jul 16, 2017


I needed to erase your memory
A part of my brain needs to shut down
permanently
Continuous operation will only
lead to greater damage
greater losses.

I needed to avoid bankruptcy
And the cost will have to be great
My memories forever deleted.

Now reformatted,
I feel so new
And yet so empty...

I have no memory of you
But at the same time
I have no memory of who I am.

    Lady Mel, a strong write from you. I.totally agree with Craig. As much as you want to erase the past you can't. We learn (hopefully) from it and grow. Well done on this-

    I could never erase my past or my present and future would be totally different.

    Things happen and sometimes it's bad things, you deal with em and you get stronger. You learn and you evolve. The bad can so so often lead to good things. Don't forget the bad stuff but don't let it control you.

    I have read many of your writings and you have commented on many of mine. From this I do not sense any weakness from you.

    To float what you do out there for all to see takes a special kind of strength.

    This my dear you have in abundance.

    I hope this makes some kind of sense

    The cost of erasing our past. Nothing comes for free and a balance must always be paid.
    Great stuff, Mel.

    This is just wow.. it's powerful and clever and though sad I do like the message of "if you completely forget your past you will forget yourself in the process" that's what I got anyway.
    One thing I think it'd work better centered just my opinion though

    Much love
    Em

      Thanks, Duchess. I have centered it and it does look better. :-)
