Fading

You told me
that endings are
never absolute,
but what remains
of your memory
is fading.

  1. WordPress somehow didn’t push this one through. *sighs*

    Focal points, words said and unsaid, reasons why, and the passing of time: in life, nothing is ever finite, especially when there are things that just won’t let it be.

    Peace, Sarah. A beautiful description with a melancholy feel.

  2. Ooo. I love the layers in that last line. It could be referring to the other person losing his memory to Alzheimers or the MC is starting to forget certain memories of a lost love or letting go of those memories.

    Just so thought-provoking. Great job! 😀

  3. The grief here really shone through along with the truth. For me personally the promises people make and do not keep are what chaff at me the most, because I truly believe in keeping promises and it seems people are fairly okay with promising lots of things and not keeping any of them. I almost distrust a promise because of that. And nobody should make you distrust a promise. I really felt this one Sarah my talented friend xo

      1. Right. That’s the worst because people deserve to be given chances and if we’re too broken already then it’s like they get a taste of our baggage before they even prove (or disprove) themselves. That said, recently a friend kept saying ‘trust me’ and I did and then she broke her word so I guess who is more the fool? The one who trusts when their gut says don’t or the one who insists someone trust only to let them down? I don’t understand that. To me it seems pretty easy to keep your word. Maybe I’m missing the point 🙂
