The Closet

We move on, leave people behind
Yet; the closet,
does not forget
and holds the power
to unexpectedly remind

Holder of surprise, memories and mystery,
Keeper of secrets, forgotten passion & history,
We move on, leave people behind
Yet; the closet,
does not forget
and holds the power
to unexpectedly remind
Re-wind,
Lost dreams and desires,
Spring back unexpectedly,
A handmade vintage wooden watch,
an exotic perfume with a whiff of us,
an unbreakable ring holding broken vows,
the comfortable tee that didn’t belong to me,
the Burberry scarf that was always with me,
brand new sneakers and socks; reminiscent of return gifts;
Tumble out Un-announced,
memories of what didn’t last
Come fleeting past
And then you do what makes most sense
You close the Closet until the next bittersweet reminiscence.
