Grab the lighter.

Conversations and words
stories of childhood
the past is on the pages
certain parts forgotten
and those pages ripped
and worn out
by decades
upon decades
upon decades.

Grab the lighter
we can burn them
not because they’re filled of shame
or horror stories
they’re not
simply because
it gets cold at night
and the warmth
of the fire
will keep us going.

We’ve spoke of our pasts
enough of that
we know what came before
and we know where we are right now
let those memories burn
all the clutter in our brains
to turn to ashes
and make room for the next pages.

Thanks for reading.
