Bittersweet memories

The folded notes in my diary fell out

Evoking bittersweet memories in my heart

Cutting into my tender soul like a knife

Yet bringing a smile to my tear stained face

How does a forgotten memory have the power

To make me smile and cry at the same time?


Written for; Tuesday Writing prompt: Write a poem using the words “notes”, “memory”, and “knife

        but loosing a friend that wasn’t a true friend – like breaking up with a boy-girlfriend that wasn’t nice… Sometimes people gently drift away. Like relatives that you don’t see often enough.
