memento mori: remember that you too will die
-
i was tagged in this elfchen by @ourpoeticmemory , thank you so much and sorry it took literal weeks for me to get around to it 😰 it was a really fun challenge for me to break out of my comfort zone!! -
tagged a few of my favourite writers to explore this new form as well, beginning with the word “memento” 💕 (don’t feel obligated to, i just think it’s a cute little challenge!!)

We spoke,
a version of quiet
that Mom and Dad
never understood,
no matter how close
their proximity.

Our hearts,
would pigeon post letters
into words our pupils
would contract,
as our eyelids would
relay them back
with Morse code blinking.

We would telegraph
our alibis in plain sight.
Sign language with eyes
turned out to be more handy.
There wasn't a phrase
we couldn't handle with care.

Until we,
civilized into adulthood
and permitted
the language of "too busy"
to be spoken between us.

Ever been slain
by a silence so thorough,
you can still hear the echo
split the atom?
I haven't either,
but I guess this distance
would be the closest thing to it.

So if you ever see my name,
grace your phone
to remind you that
"Yeah, I'm still alive,"
you don't have to answer.
I know you're busy,
I just wanted to say
I miss you...

Dedicated to my big sister. Thank you for holding my hand even before I understood how much it would mean to me now. 🙏🏾❤️

As children, we are curious, open and unafraid to be vulnerable.
Then comes adolescence where the safety nets of blamelessness are torn, we feel the emptiness that creeps us in the early hours of AM into the busy hours of the day. The void which charades as the darkness.
Suffering eats us deep and we are forced into self, merging with the darkness, the pits of humankind.
In this darkness, there comes restoration.
Balance, Love & Clarity.
The darkness is the light.
