Complex Creatures

We are complex creatures,
Beyond our own ken,
Thinking we know ourselves,
But suddenly then,
A memory pops up,
From where we not know when,
And we find ourselves crumbled,
And building again.

  1. One hundred percent agreed on this one. This happens to me as well, though thankfully not all the time. Nicely written piece. 🙂

    • I was recently reminded of how much I had always wanted a brother. Hadn’t really thought about it for years, but that longing was a formative part of my growing up. When I did start thinking about it I was surprised by how strong the feelings still are.

  2. I must agree 100% with Miss Kitten. I have days, nay months where I’m Great-Aunt Superhero who can do anything and everything and I’m the one that’s being relied on and those days I feel so strong; like nothing can get me down, then one of those memories I thought I’d hidden so well, or that hadn’t even crossed my mind in years pops up and I’m in depressed and angry at self mode for weeks. It seems I have to start from the beginning and it takes a while before I can start rebuilding my self-confidence.
    Very well written piece. Be blessed.

    • Thanks for the kind words! I am amazed not just at the memory, but all of the feelings attached to it. Like a whole little package that I’d stored up on a shelf and it has somehow fallen down and the lid popped open.
