Memory Stain iii

memories are but feelings immortalised
and every fragment of you that features in a daydream or bedtime fantasy
creates the polarity between my emotions and reason

like the spark of that season
when you and I were intimate
the times that had me believing
for love – life was worth living

yet when the mood subsides
I feel compromised
knowing you’re sleeping
in some other’s bed, on some other’s chest

I had always been told that if you love… you let go
but I didn’t suspect you’d find some place else to nest
and so soon

but if memories are feelings immortalised
then I have no regrets
even if one minute they are fresh
and the next – stained
