Poem: Memories Haunt Her

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Memories haunt her is about a woman whose memories flood with thoughts of him as she tries to sleep. She aches for him, longing to know the truth. She feels restless, hoping to stop the pictures playing in her mind. She wonders if he feels this nightmare too, or if it is only a movie for one.

"Those Memories Of You" by Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Rondstadt

Memories Haunt Her

When she lays her head down to sleep,
teardrops fill her eyes,
as thoughts of him flood her mind,
the memories haunt her.

Her heart splits wide open
with no bandage big enough
to stop the constant bleeding,
longing for the truth.

Her tormented, restless soul
stirs in the still of the night,
hoping to erase the echoes
dancing in her head.

She wonders if he feels
this nightmare too,
or if it's only
a movie for one.
