Another Night is Over

Writer’s Digest poetry prompt:  For today’s prompt, write a memory poem. The poem could be about a personal memory, someone else’s memory, or even play with the fact that some people lose memories. Just remember to write a poem.


Blurred around the edges

Hazy, detached at first

Something sharp brings everything into focus


The knife finds the same wound,

but plunges a bit deeper with the recall

Over and over

Twisting the blade 


“Let it go”

Cleanse the wound, rinse out the infection

Bandage it up

The scar tissue will be thick, resilient

Just another lesson learned, another tortured memory repaired
