MEMORABLE ME by Carolyn Glackin We've all but a short time Here, on this Earth Our days, preordained From the moment of birth Perhaps we spread joy While in service to others Many folks become fathers While others become mothers Some people are heroes Always saving the day Some people heal hearts Through the words that they say Some make poor choices That affect them for life Too blind to the truth Too caught up in strife Some learn huge lessons Becoming wise and enlightened Finally free from false notions They're no longer frightened We all make our mark here Through the lives that we lead So always choose wisely In action and deed So you'll be well regarded Respected and treasured In the years yet to come From now 'til forever And after all that I've said Of the things people do I'll wrap this piece up With a question for you In what way do you wish To be known in our hearts Beyond the day that your soul Transcends and departs?

// Is it possible to miss those words that runs in your veins Or is it about us who wants to turn them into poetry ? //
My palms are covered in callouses from trying to repair the hearts that are broken yet I fail to do so. I chase stability as the farewells are catching up on me. The fake smiles are back and biting at my ankles .
// The setting sun looks much more like a Tahitian prince dancing in love with the rays on the mauve sky. //
The void in my chest is like a vessel filled of euphoric elation and love is my utopia . As I sit at the corner of my heart and watch every sunset singing the song of the Aegean blue sea.
// There is nothing left in the kingdom of the night mare, as you wouldn't recognize the spineless version of the day dream .//
The night in me is slowly turning away maybe someday I will be the day . I made a museum from the blood humans shed . Oh have I pour rain on the dreamy tales your fancy craves ?
