Fighting Memory

  1. Rewinds in mind keep me awake

    Some days renew their boundlessness

    Confidence to reel amends

    Beyond the fence

    I find myself

    With yearbook friends


    Paint the scape with mental scrapes

    To push me through my darkest days

    Examining what was a blaze

    The draw a heart the spade an ace


    Remind myself to play on cue

    Flashbacks bare a weightlessness

    Nonetheless they hold me in

    What was amiss

    In times set after

    Travel’s end


    Hope remains to paint the plains

    Vibrant colors once again

    HopefulJacob, I really like this poem. :) Lovely words and rhythms, rhymes and images! You use the idea of "painting" a couple of times - I imagined both a blank canvas and a lot of color. A good poem - thanks for sharing! :)
