I Remember But I Know

I Remember But I Know

I remember

Bathing in clothes with the color of flowers and sunsets bleeding into them 

I remember 

Drinking knowledge from lessons as if my brain never knew what water was

I remember

Creativity leaking through my fingertips and dying a canvas with colors more vibrant than rainbows

I remember

Carrying bags filled with toys 

I remember

The feeling of the wind kissing my cheeks during recess

and the earthy ground underneath my fingers

as I dug for the creatures of the world

And I remember

The forest that grew in my mind

filled with ideas without restrictions

and branching out its trees from my heart

and its lakes trickling down to the soles of my feet

However, I know of white blouses with plaid skirts

and knee high socks as tall as my self-esteem 

I know of drowning in bitter coffee so often

that it began to taste sweet

I know of the stress leaking from my eyes

And dying my pillow with self sabotage and hate 

I know of the bags I carry

not in my hands but

under my eyes

and filled with not toys but 

restless nights and apologies that were said far too late

I know the feeling of sharp winds biting my skin

And the dried dirt underneath my feet

as I wait for recess to end

But most of all

I know of the wasteland growing in my heart

With its thorny limbs entangling themselves around my brain

And its dried rivers full of dust embedded in my veins

And unlimited restrictions filling its being

I remember happiness

But

I know self hate much better

This one tells a lot about you probably went through, it's so clearly written and the vocabulary is so expanded that it's a pure pleasure to read.

You're right~ I've been trying to work on my vocabulary lately, so I'm glad it's showing! :D

I'm new I just don't know how to add a poem not so sure how to write it besides being a comment. Haven't figure it out.

Right on the club home page, it should allow you to add an entry.
