From February’s Writing Prompts, February 22, 2016
This file is too big to erase. The file that is stored up in my head, filled with memories, emotions, feelings. There are too many to count. So much to fill the paper with, but will I ever get it all out?
Sometimes the file gets too full and memories need to be released to make way for the new ones. Good ones. The ones we want to remember. But I can’t seem to get in…is the file cabinet locked?
Not all memories are treasures. Sometimes the brain likes to play tricks and keep you locked out of that cabinet so you don’t have to relive it all. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to let it all go – to move on?
I think I need another file folder – this one is exploding.
