Delaying

I suppose you’ll forget me at some point,
Just, can it be not quite yet?
Let me linger just a little longer still
In these memories you kept.
They never said that it was simple.
Life that is I mean.
We were never given hand guides
How boring would that have been!
We forged out own way through time,
Through the jungles of mess.
Stumbling through both love and hurt,
Then of course all the rest.
So I’ll suppose we’ll all forget at some point,
The adventures we had.
Living in the madness of life
Experiencing both the good and bad.
But can we wait just a little longer please?
Let me have just a sec
To relive just one more memory,
Before its time to forget.
You see I’m scared of what’s next.
I’ve never been there before,
No one really knows
What lies beyond death’s door.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
