Poem - Ending of Memories

“Ending of Memories” was inspired by a Tumblr meme. The poem is NOT pro-suicide. The poem, and the associated meme, speaks to the ending of memories, the ending of possibilities. It is a reminder, and a plea, to acknowledge that an impacted life is cut short of what could be.

Ending of Memories

In mere seconds the world would change
with a choice made in the dark

framed by the strobing lights
red and blue in the night
sad beginning of the end
embarking in memorial

the journey cut short in step
by a hand that had enough
consider what will not be
the fixed end of the mysteries

revelations no longer made
concluding chapter to the book
the pen is left on the page
ink replaced by weeping rush

mixing past with the pain
blurring lines no longer seen
all the memories are enclosed
in the tomb submerged in tears

the only sound heard within
silence locked by actions past
a cold wind remains behind
echoing what came before

the world is changed in the death
the ending of memories.
