Memories awaken

‘Days slip by’ – @anjkan

Tracks of my tears
Heard on the radio
Memories awaken
I thought had died
Reopening old wounds

Sadness arrives in many ways.
Who of us does not know this?
Who of us has not been wounded?
Some say that pain make us strong.
Who needs that kind of strength?

I sometimes wonder
Why I prefer dark poetry.
Is it the deep intensity
And the powerful imagery? 
Or just my own dark character?
