Cardboard Boxes

January 16, 2010
I'm letting all those mail lists end,
burying all my aging animals,
losing touch with memories,
increasing distances between friends.
Throwing away keepsakes
that just don't matter to me
Child hood's over.
I'm losing everything I've ever known
I'm all for beginnings, but
where's my past gonna go?
Not all things fit in brown
cardboard boxes
you know.

I like this! I followed you until the last two embarrassing as that is to admit, it's true, they just threw me off. Great job!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my poem. Its wonderful to get such wonderful feedback. One question though. When you said that the last two words threw you off, did you mean they didn't fit with the rest of the poem, or you just didn't see them?
