Some Things I Cannot Speak Of

Only some things
cannot be replayed
the pain too deep
the memory too near
only some things

But other things
oh so many other things
come easily to the pen
softly remembered
So many other things

Some things still so raw
the tears still fresh
even of many years past
the gut recoils in spasms
only some things

And yet so many things
fly freely to the page
so much laughter
humor to be shared
wonderful things

But some things....

Yup. Some things are, well, just some things.

Poignant and moving. Lovely thoughts and remind me of moments in my own life.

Great to see you at my place. Intimacy is the right word for that haiku. Did you peak at the photo prompt? It was quite irresistible.

Lola Sharp said...

Some things are what they are, aren't they?

Loved this.

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Powerful truths...beautifully expressed and emphasize with repetition!!! I not only love the sentiments, but I also love the structure of this!!! Fantastic!

Wishing peace to you and anyone, myself included, who have painful things to deal with. some of which keep cropping up when least expected..... xoxo

Syd said...

Some things will remain with me forever. I just can choose how much I wish to dwell on them.

Marla said...

Your writing is really wonderful

Jeni said...

Now this was a post to which I can relate - fully!

TheUndertaker said...

Yes, some things are worth remembering, and some aren't. But it is almost as if we cannot choose and our memory picks bits for us, things we don't want to remember! : )
If only memory was more carefully selective and precious with us!

Eternally Distracted said...

Those some things I saved for a completely new blog. One that absolutely nobody knows about... maybe that is an option for you too?

Nezzy said...

Oh baby, this was great! Yep, I'm afraid we all have those thing we push deep down that are just to painful to put down on paper. Thanks for so eloquently puttin' it into words for us.

Have a great day filled with beautiful blessings from above.

Suldog said...

As much as I reveal about myself at my place, there's more I won't. I know the feeling.

beth said...

I understand about "those somethings"....because they are always there.....

Mama Zen said...

Absolutely!

Margie said...

Wonderful poem and I loved how you ended it!

I'm late getting here as I've been on my computer very little since I got back from my trip.
I took a fall on the ski slope and need to rest my knee most of the day.

Be well my freind!
Be happy my freind!

blueviolet said...

I agree...some things are left unspoken forever, others are spoken of but only when it's time...

Sassy Pants Freckle Face said...

jinksy said...

It's always hard to express the deepest feelings - but great when you do..

gayle said...

secret agent woman said...

Some times I am surprised but what I can write about, and other times it catches me off guard by how impossible it is to put something into words.

jozien said...

thanks technobabe:)
this is so me, right now.
what wonderful sharing, after all we are all so very much the same.
i wish you all the best, with your things that won't fly so freely.

Unknown Mami said...

Yes!

Cheryl said...

Lovely poem and I can relate.

Talon said...

"softly remembered" - I love that!

Some things just remain raw, no matter how much time has passed and defy the old "time heals all wounds" philosophy.

Really enjoyed your poem, Technobabe.
