Pass The Past [sell]

by Kevin   Nov 19, 2007


Memories, like accidents,
not the feelings of "features",
films I mean,
just happen.

I don't feel the past like sickness,
nor recognize yon face like fear.
My brain allows your face unshroud,
assembles what has been as clear.

Memories, like outbursts,
not the calm intended word.
Speeches I mean,
just surface.

I don't explode in recollection,
nor slowly come to memorize you.
My mind cannot be made a "state",
I'd never wake and say "I know you".

    I like this, alot.
    I really like your language and how it alters in a couple places going from very common, everyday to complex.
    I would have to say the second stanza is my favorite, "I don't feel the past like sicknes..."
    and I loved your closing line.

    Gooood reeeeaddd

    Wow... This is amazingly written and truly deep. It is very original, different from anything I've read before. I like it from the beginning to the end, every stanza holds something special and unique.
    Truly enjoyable read.
    My favorite stanza is:

    -Memories, like outbursts,
    not the calm intended word.
    Speeches I mean,
    just surface.-

    Greatly done!

You had me thinking from start to finish and I really enjoyed the rare emotions expressed within each line. You ended this perfectly, it was really deep and you portrayed your emotions vividly into this poem and I loved it. Such an enjoyable read which captivated my mind. Well done. ~Mel
