poetry

a forgotten memory

I am a forgotten memory
with a quiet mouth of a clock( a chain that clogs my neck)
a forgotten yellow tainted page, blank as an ocean.
These people i see, i smile at my own hands,
my own chin, my deep purple intense eye(i know it has an intense shape of a flower)
softly listening all songs
swallowing the delusional veins and freckles of my hands,
i know i am a memory.

forgotten like vintage telephones, crooked voices
90’s soft love collecting silver dust from mouth to mouth,
movement of the breeze, a song of nostalgia.
Sepia. Broken pencils. Vintage poetry.
forgotten like that.

  1. It’s magical, what you do with words, Devika. I love the following lines:
    “i know i am a memory.
    forgotten like vintage telephones, crooked voices
    90’s soft love collecting silver dust from mouth to mouth,
    movement of the breeze, a song of nostalgia.
    Sepia. Broken pencils. Vintage poetry.
    forgotten like that.”

  2. This poem had a melancholy almost dreamy mood. Somber and very different from your usual write. Broken pencils, nostalgic songs, and vintage phones may all be forgotten. Only a damn fool would forget this heart felt poetry or a muse like you.
    MVS, like a beautiful sunset; you never disappoint.

  3. Your words are too beautiful and carry that deep pain, which can not be forgotten soon I guess. Your verses are that sepia stain in my aberrant thoughts. Time scrubs it gently but here you are, stuck to me like a reminder of the pain.
