Peripheral Vision

Someone new comes into my life and your essence always disappears.

Alone again and you fill up that empty place.

It’s been almost a year.

Why do you keep invading my space?

    Isn’t it ironic how the disappeared always tend to reappear, and how the mind often remember that which we would rather forget? That one finds himself asking the rhetorical question, “why do you keep invading my space?” I guess it’s part of life, to deal with unsolicited memories whenever they solicit our attention. Beautifully written btw.

      Thank you for the thought-out comment. It’s a nice piece of writing in and of itself. I esp like “the unsolicited memories …solicit our attention.”
      It’s a reminder that I need to spend more time on the cushion.
      Thanks for the compliment as well.

    I’m not sure if it applies in this case or not, but I know that sometimes people can become habits. They haunt familiar places like ghosts.

    Interesting musings Suzanne.. what comes to mind here is ‘holding onto nothing’
    But who said memories can’t be held onto?
