If only there were an eraser big enough
to wipe the memories clean
leave nothing behind
seen and unseen

Take away what will not leave
lingering ghosts of the past
maybe then the mind
could be free at last

Places, faces, feelings, choices
everything connected to you
back to when I believed
what was said was true

Every day they come
to bring the hurt anew
why can’t an eraser
wipe my mind of you

    Sigh….so very true. When you find one, would you pick me up one? I could use it….I’ll pay you back!! 😀 This was wonderful and touched me deeply.

    Good write, and wouldn’t such an eraser be a great thing to own?
