"Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose."
    --Kevin Arnold

"Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future."
    --Lewis B. Smedes

struck by the
incandescent rays of a
night’s insomniac ceilings
peeping through
a hole
butterflies in the stomach
at the
sight of moon as the
heart beats louder
more panicked rhythm
snoring beneath a partly opened window and
the light that had spread through
stitched the darkness with an
irregular curve
a crying kitten
sound of a
passing car
blues playing from a distance
i should have escaped a
sense of you but your tangle
creeping with the familiar
smell of dawn
the curl of your lips
