The Body Remembers

the mind forgets

but the body remembers

storing all of our lives

in tissue, cells and tendons

the joy

the pain

the darkness

the light

all of it there

just lingering below

the surface

lingering below the skin

passing through the blue veins

in the heartbeat

in the blink of our eyes

the lives we live

internally

the quiet ones

not even we know of

remembering

every single thing

every word

every hurt

every thought

every feeling

the mind forgets

but the body remembers
