Drawers of Memory (Inspired by "Drawers of Memory" by Salvador Dali)


More by this author
Suppressed memories, secret memories
Lay unrevealed in the corners of my mind.
I'd locked them up and thrown away the key--
My memories.

I kept the drawers in my mind
shut tight, memories packed away,
for I could not cope with it all.
No one could know. No one could understand.

Struggle. Internal combat.
Is everything in there bad?
Rifling through the drawers looking for a glint of good.
In a secret compartment I found a certain spark.


I

realized:





locking


up
my



agonizing

Memories


does

not



take


them
away.



Why
must


I
hide

them



in



fear?

Instead,

I



hold
my

key,
unlock

my

drawers

with

pride,




and

unpack

my

memories,
for




the


world
to





see.
