Bright or Grey

A chain of memories ran through my head

Not a second thought was given to any

The past must stay dead

Some were bright, others were grey

But they all had one thing in common

Not one of them could be allowed to stay

For a moment I felt slightly sad

Nothing ever changes

You never miss what you’ve never had.


Something began to form in the corner of my eye

I could explain the reason

I couldn’t tell you why

A tiny tear rolls down my cheek, a memory given physical form

Only for it to be wiped away

I couldn’t tell you why.
