3ww writing prompt; funny, remember, theatre


memories


it's funny the times
i remember you most;
when the stars are out
in full and sounds of
nature surround me.
i think of you when
i shop for groceries
or while i'm working
on a new poem.
sometimes i think
of you when i go
to the theatre and
the movie is one i
know you'd like.
it's really unintentional
these times you slip
into my life. i'd like to
think i could make it
through one day and
never have you cross
my mind, but the chances
of that seem slim.

some loves are impossible to break from. Great use of the word--saw the theme obviously but had to really look for the words

Maybe this is someone you would like to wipe out of your memory? I guess there are several interpretations of the poem, depending on the reader's experience. That's what makes it so good.
