Remember to remember

When I remember to remember the ache creeps in. So easy is it to push aside dreams and in turn head towards a given reality.

 

When I remember to remember a shadow is thrown. So easy is it to run with the sun and leave behind the darkness in silence.

 

When I remember to remember the silence breaks. So easy is it to listen to breath and the constant rhythm of the heart.

 

It beats

I breathe

I cast shadows

I walk the path blind

 

Yet when I remember to remember

When I choose to not forget. I know.

 

It is not so easy to escape that which comes from within. Blinding yourself. Ignoring the ache. When I remember to remember I feel sad.

 

Perhaps I shall forget this too.

  1. I have to admit, I’ve caught myself thinking that I’ve read all of Enreal’s thoughts over the years. Then you put up another post. And I discover something yet again new. Something yet again beautiful. Like this. I absolutely and wholeheartedly love the cold simplicity in this one that lies over such colorful darkness like a crystal clear sheet of ice over a deep lake.

    LOVE IT.

    “It is not so easy to escape that which comes from within.”

    So true.

    I loved Spaz’s comment/comparison for you, “like a crystal clear sheet of ice over a deep lake”… yes!

    • Sam~ beautifully sad… yes. There is a melancholia which has been casting shadows on my path as of late… it is beautifully sad… it is companionship. Thank you for being here … thank you so much for your voice which carries words to my heart.

      • thank you, enreal. I hope your path leads you to brighter days soon… and that I am fortunate enough to read about it when it does. Either way, I will consider myself lucky to follow your journey. In sadness, joy, shadow, or light – your words always intrigue and inspire.
