Memories #Poetry

Memories frozen in time
Are melting,
Stirring forgotten tears

Some emerge from
Dark crevices of heart,
Lurching weakly

The one I buried in books
Wriggled out,
Much enlightened

The one I submerged in the stream
Of my thoughts
Is peeping out

The one I hid in the old house
Grew wings,
Craving for light

Their grief was muted
Muffled callously,
Eager to share their gloomy journey

Memories gather this time
To mourn
In the arms of a poet

Exulting at his expertise
Of offering solace – hollow
Hollow words of comfort!

      2. Arg, I’m sorry to hear that Balroop. I haven’t heard this from anyone else. I haven’t changed a thing. I do know that I have had some trouble logging into some blogs and discovered it was because my VPN was on. Even changing browsers didn’t help. Are you using a VPN?
