Treacherous Memories

Treacherous Memories short poem

Photo by Eric Prunier 

How treacherous
Often memories could be.
The ones I needed most, betray
And those not, stay.
Yes I am talking of poignant
And ugly memories.

Between the ticks of time,
They take turns to torment me.
Even in dreams, they don’t spare —
I am served astringent stew
Of two cups of throes of sadness,
One cup of fear and one spoonful of joy.

Like Hollywood thrillers,
They have no conclusiveness,
Every end is the beginning
Of another sequel.
How treacherous
Often memories could be.

MEMORIES ….. I love your sweet voice , Handling your craziness is my choice . Playing games all day long , and all those stupid questions from nowhere they belong. Sharing every joy or pain , Partners in crime ,
