Why do you want to edit.....




I always realized…

Trying to edit life that

Certain aspects are

Beyond comprehension!


Thoughts…feel…Love...trust

And of course…One’s zeal!



I always realized…

Trying to revise time that

Certain portions are

Far-off from conception!


Frozen moments… Melting melodies...

And of course…Hordes of memories!



Why do you want to edit dear

Things are beautiful …
When they are raw...

Things are beautiful ....
When they are natural….Without any saw!

Very nice writing, PT. There are some things that never need editing. A lovely reminder in your words.

Oh I so know about being unable to edit or pretty up some of those past memories.......my sense of humor helps in that department. I related to this poem very much!

Editing can be like a saw. I like the way that last part sticks out as if it's ready to be sawed off.

agreed how can they be edited away
your words tho making an obvious statement are so necessary

Perhaps your narrator has not lived long enough to wish he/she could edit certain mistakes out of his/her life!! God knows, I need that saw!! :)
Oh my, I must confess that I use saws all the time LOL. But I see the beauty in leaving some things in the raw. Good writing and thanks for the fresh perspective. :)

So true that life the way it is. is just the way it is meant to be even though we don't understand why. Brilliantly written.
