NaPoWriMo 2012 day 10

watching that film
about eternal sunshine
and attempts at spotless minds
loving the irony of it
reminding me of you

that i wonder at
the possiblity of forgetting
and how trying only seems
to make memories hold faster

all well and good
if the remembering were real
instead childhood days
meld with fantasies
i find myself shaking sand

from shoes that never saw a beach
wring out showers unspent
depart for home
but drift to lost
on a path i know too well

until the morning
whenever that is
with circadian discarded
in favour of waking dreaming
night owls in place of sunrise crows

  1. You must read "Eloisa to Abelard" by Alexander Pope, if you haven't already!
