something i want you to know

i want you to know that i still think of you.
not all the time, but often enough.
and you jump into my head
at the most random moments.


i still have the bracelet you gave me.
it hangs in my car.
i have the ring, too.
i dont wear it anymore
but i do keep it.
and the necklace.
its in my jewelry chest.


thats about all i have left
to remind me of you.
besides my memories.

I had a box of photographs and memories, hidden safe beneath my bed. I pulled it out on rainy days and lonely nights but the weight of their presence bore through me. Now all I have the necklace, it hangs heavy from my neck like a curse, reminding me of the beauty I wasted. The memories have been locked away, they are not wanted anymore. They prey on me, slowly picking at the pieces of my soul... no it's best that they're locked away. It hurts too much to think of such joy and such sadness.
Love you <3

sounds like someone dear is no longer as close in relationship as it may have been once. I like the transparency and sincerity i sense in this.

wow - takes me back a lifetime. Can still feel the loneliness and pain and tears and emptiness. I wish you a new someone who will take away the sad and bring on the glad. Memories will always be there...

I like that we don't *think* when we write........

Confession: Every now and again....for only a little while......I turn on the function that makes the computer keys clack. lol

Nice write. I look forward to reading more!
