Written by Alicia

Memories so safe
kept in a place
like a green book
opening and closing

Far away
In a land of day
Where nothing
not anything
has ever been seen
ever seen

no living breath
no human eyes
Just memories
living their lives

Memories come and
memories go
Do as they please
never with woe

Sometimes they hurt
Sometimes they don't
But memories can succeed

Nikki E. said, "you could be a great poet someday." But I think you already are! You are so original, and I like your sort of ominous and mysterious writing style. You manage to be matter-of-fact and totally relatable and emotional! I know you don't know me, so my opinion doesn't mean much, but I find this poem very impressive. You should submit your writing to contests and literary magazines.
