Remember the Good Times

“No, I don’t remember. There’s only so much room in my brain, something has to go.”

That’s my go-to answer for when I don’t remember shit, for when I’ve forgotten names, birthdays or to pay the bills.

I wish I could select which memories to throw away and which ones to store for safe keeping. If I could, I’d make sure just happy memories filled my mind, because everyone should remember the good times.

True Love Waits

Thanks to Lillie McFerrin Writes

She waited and listened, sitting in the same chair for hours. The road remained silent and empty, just like the last year of her life.

Another day gone, one day left, his letter said this week. Her hand trembled as she moved to close the window and shut out the cool night air.  In the distance, a cloud of dust clouded her vision and she ran to meet her love half-way.

No Trespassing

The afternoon sun did little to soften the chill as they walked.

Jenna hesitated before the opening; the faded warning alarmed her, No Trespassing.

Kyle clasped her hand and ushered her past the broken boards as he said, “It’s okay.”

His flashlight bounced off the rock walls as they sank to the blanket covering the dirt floor.

She suppressed a giggle, as she sat in an old deserted mine and waited for her first kiss.
