Emptying My Closet

Every morning I wake up
with dreams of you
scattered on my pillow
lying silent and in deep slumber
as I slowly pick them up
one at a time
keeping them safe
in that deep dark corner
of my closet
just next to
a bunch of your memories
a couple of your heartbeats
and some verses from your poems
which I have treasured in there
as my secret possessions
my precious assets
and someday if we meet again
may be I will show them to you
and then you can take them home
and make them your own
or may be just set them free
or crush and throw them into a bin
and that would empty my closet
and leave me space
to store brand new dreams
brand new memories
brand new heartbeats
and brand new poems.

    1. Read your post Chy…it was lovely…and I felt as if I too were in London with you. Why’s there no like butten on your page ? And can I only leave a comment on your mail and not otherwise ?

      1. I am always wondering why people only leave a comment through gmail/email. You are supposed to be able to leave a comment through gmail/faceboook/ wordpress/disqus . Can you please help me and check if you are able to do this? Thank you girl!

        1. Chy, I think it has got to do with the theme which you have chosen for your blog. It perhaps does not provide an option for readers to leave comment directly under your post or like them. I am not too tech savvy and hence not the best person to suggest anything substantial on this. May be you can try shifting to an alternate theme which would provide you those options. Try taking help from one of your tech savvy friends.

  1. This imagery is powerfully and yet gently articulated. A beautiful encapsulation of having ones thoughts consumed by another, and living with the notion that it may be best to change our sheets and shake off the daydreams. Thanks for sharing ❀

  2. The way your poem has woven a picture of the constant inflow of memories and their departure leaves me awestruck. The simple yet well connected verses make your poem very fluid. Had a great time reading your poem.

  3. “with dreams of you
    scattered on my pillow”
    I’m not quite sure why just yet, but this hit me hard, I found these lines very powerful.
    I’m new to this whole WordPress thing and have only just started looking at other poetry, but I’m glad I did.
