"epiphanous moment" [poem]


...it just hit me...


the reason
why i have not
emptied these boxes

repositories of
past and future,
keepers of
darkness and light

...like a ton of bricks...

i've been expecting,
to be summoned back
to that place,
to that life,
to you.

...untapped burden, released...

realization of the call
that will never come
for,
you do not want me,
did not love me,
never cared.

...its time to carry on...

Love the concept of this poem, the idea of keeping belongings while waiting for a life that is long gone. Very bittersweet and yet the ending makes it liberating.

This was my favorite line
keepers of
darkness and light
