Cleaning My House Of Your Memories

I am cleaning my house.

Of your memories.

Looking at memories to throw away,

that I don’t need any longer.


The yellow waxy box with your stuff, the chipped shaving mug,

Albums of black and white photographs of our wedding – with half forgotten faces from half forgotten places.


The house is smaller now.

And I don’t have space for all the memories.

I have to be selective – what memories to save and what to throw away.


I am cleaning my house,

Of your memories.
