EXILED MEMORIES

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

in a quiet place
deep in my heart
hidden from my soul
locked away from view
kept in the darkness
away from the light of day
or dreams in the night
are the exiled memories
I still keep of you
partitioned from my thoughts
and feelings
and the everyday life I live 

the life I built
after you left
is better than the
times we spent together
it deserves the peace and
freedom from intrusion
and pain that remembering you
causes me when I think of you 

I still keep secrets
hidden in my heart
locked away from view
that are still a part of me
that my soul can’t bear to see

exiled memories
of you
