My world once full of color

Is now monochrome


There is a chill in the air

Where sunshine once lived

In the place we called home


Your voice lingering still

In the empty rooms


Memories from the past

Evicted so cruelly

Now living in tombs

In response to  GoDogGo Cafe 3 Word Writing Prompt Nov 6th

The Challenge was to be inspired by the words Gray, Wind and Echoes but not use them in the poem

      Thanks Gina. I always think that in a break up, the one who is left is the one who holds on to the memories. The other just forgets 😢

        they choose to forget. being a keeper of memories doesn’t work when you have no one to share it with. that’s how i feel some days

        Yes, Gina. I’m so thankful that I can put it in words in this way. Keeping these thoughts to yourself is not healthy

    A powerful last finale stanza
    “Memories from the past
    Evicted so cruelly
    Now living in tombs”
