I thought he’d forever remain:
like the black ink on a ripped up newspaper,
the earthy smell of old books or a stamped

postcard found under all the letters,
the smell of coffee, so strong and raw
at least that’s what I had thought.

I should have known, that all good things
come to an end; newspapers, books,
postcards decompose and who would have known?
that overtime, I’d begin to hate the
sickly smell of coffee.
Now that I’m here, I have a responsibility to no one but myself: to erase all our memories…



Note: Hello my loves, I hope you will find this piece interesting. πŸ™‚ The beautiful painting is done by the awesome Nassima from Artoxygen, I would appreciate if you could check out her work! She is a lovely soul. In her own words this painting “carries within it’s brush strokes and multiple layers: Love and Sadness, Hurt and Happiness, Dear ones and Enemies…”

      1. I really appreciate your support and love for my humble art Asfa, you are gifted and talented and as I told you before you are the Queen of Words at least to me ☺🌷 you know what? When I read your beautiful inspiring words I get inspired and I imagine in my head a painting of it.. Is it the same to you Asfa when you see any other drawing or painting? Does it inspire you to create a magic world of words? ☺
