Unboxing memories…

Box of Memories | MC's Whispers
Picture reference

It’s times when you clean your cupboard,

And come across the useless things you hoard.

You see that cute old dress,

And realize it’s not really useless.


Your memories are encrypted in everything,

All you need to do is cling.

Cling on to those happy moments,

And stop them from being stolen.


Believe me; you don’t want to lose them,

Because they tell you how far you’ve come.

Every single stored memory,

Is like a gold treasury.


Those birthday cards, friendship bands and photographs,

The diaries that hold those emotional paragraphs.

Oh god! It makes me so nostalgic!

Of those times which were classic.


There are things which trigger those sad memories too,

But I still hold on to them because they’re true.

All those memories always had a place in my heart’s faucet,

But to trigger them I also needed to deposit them in my closet.

    1. Thank you so much! Glad you like it!
      Oh! Yes, it did bring back nostalgia and I felt like going back in time. I wrote this after I actually cleaned my closet and found a box full of cards and precious things I had kept.
