The Memories in My Mind

They Poke and Prod and Penetrate

Running through the naked portions of my thoughts

My memories are the phallic symbols of my mind

They poke and prod and penetrate Thinking they can dominate Wherever they shall integrate

Hot rod racing toward a crash

Single motion we do clash

A little hygiene and a splash

My memories are the happy times left behind

They leave me laughing in a crowd

Talking to myself outloud

No matter where or why I'm proud

My memories are the living traces that still bind

Like a movie in rewind

A little tickle to remind

Open eyes that once were blind

My memories are the wheels divine

Gentle grind

Mostly kind

Are the memories in my mind

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.
