of the moments
Are the memories
and the moments
that haunt us forever.
Saw her once,
never made a move.
Saw her twice,
and never pursued.
Ever since then…
I know I’m hard to love.
Would you rather me easy to leave?
I carry more passion than my heart can hold.
Would you rather me be empty instead?
I speak with a confusing babble in my own words.
Would you rather me have nothing to say?
I see things that you will never truly understand.
Or, would you rather see nothing in me at all?
Our romance was short-lived. A reminder of
how fleeting time is. Stunning blooms like that
are quick to be found. Although, those pedals of
passion fall fast to the ground. It’s the type of
memory that exists without a guarantee. A passing
moment in time, like a cherry blossom tree. The
sign of a beautiful beginning. Yet, also the sign of
the end. The latter of which is where we part ways.
No longer in love, nor even as friends.
In a deviation from his popular writings on high strangeness, paranormal investigator and author Justin Bamforth reflects on more personal mysteries, including life, love, and the great beyond. “Spilled Ink” presents a beautifully illustrated collection of revealing insights into the joys of desire, the pain of heartbreak, and the uncertainty of starting all over again. Written in Justin’s engaging, thought-provoking style and complemented by the intricate artwork of Jessica Choi, this collection of poetry and prose will leave you with plenty to consider in what makes us human after all.
