Blind Spot

I don't know
what makes me sadder -
the stupid
miserable things I've done . . .

or that I'm the only one
left
who remembers them.

So...if you let yourself off the hook, who would beat you up for stuff? Exactly. Lose the boxing gloves, woman.

Learning to let go was never an easy lesson.

I keep a little notebook somewhere for those things.. Maybe it's time to burn it.

Stacy Lynn Mar said...

well, at least there's someone left to remember them.
unless you want to forget.

you really give the reader a good reflection here to look toward.
i like to pretend my 'stupid things' never happened. haha. if i have to, i feign severe forgetfulness at the age of 33. lol

You're not old enough to be standing alone with your memories...

And Shay's right. If you're the only one, eat a bunch of chocolate ice cream or drink some wine and forget... Give yourself a break.

I am right behind you, MZee. In my sixth life I grew up with them. The Eagles share top billing with my 'Earbugs'. I've listed a few biggie titles today. They may be in your head also.
