Wordy Wednesday (“Packing”)

I move to college exactly one week from today. And I’m kind of just going around and hugging everything in sight, right now, and telling everybody how much I’m going to miss them (I’d like to point out that I’m moving like an hour from home–it really should not be that big of a deal).

I’m also doing a ton of laundry and attempting to figure out how to fit all of my stuff into a dorm room. Fun times.

In honor of the move, this week’s Wordy Wednesday is a poem I wrote yesterday about packing my clothes. I guarantee you that there’s more to it than that description merits.

**********

Sit in dark, clutch t-shirt

Hold it in, hold it to you

Cannot give in, cannot fall

Fold shirt, smooth wrinkles

Place on bed, in the Discard pile

Growing, beside the smaller

Keep

Leaving, leaving now

So soon to say goodbye,

Cannot hold it in, cannot hold on to

this goodbye, it’s gone too soon

And now it’s a memory and it hasn’t

even ended yet, but it’s fading

Fading, fading, fading to Dark

And I will miss you,

Will you miss me?

I cannot, I cannot lose you

Not now, after I’ve lost all the other memor—

Pick up t-shirt and move it to

Keep

I cannot lose you,

Not quite yet.

**********

Mind helping me out and voting for what next week’s Wordy Wednesday should be?

Thanks!

  1. I know the feeling…. Moving on can be exciting, but also sad as you start to let go of things from your past. Some things are just too hard to let go of for a while (or ever).
