The end of an era

Bubble wrap your memories
And seal them in boxes.

Then on each lonely, sad day,
Unpack one box at a time.

Watch those mistakes set against all the happiness
Those regrets against those wins.

Laugh, cry, belive and heal
Slowly losing one day to nostalgia. 

And then close the box
and store it for another gloomy day.

  9. Zoya - your prose always leaves me breathless. I just wish I had a better insight into your metaphor (although I have a reasonably good sense of what inspired this post!). Just a superb piece of penmanship.

  14. Those regrets against those wins
    bubble wrap them all
    some fragile....some precious
    some that have melted...against others, still rocks!
    Some to tether....some to set you free
    But still....Bubble wrap them all....
