A poem about how we may keep certain things that remind us of certain events.

sentimental

yeah so
maybe I keep an article of clothing
because
it is attached to a certain memory
or
occasionally
I drive by some place I used to live
to see if it still looks the same
and
there are times
I start to wonder about an old lover
where they are
and how they are doing
but
over time
those things begin to lose their meaning
they begin to fade
and I move on to other things
other places
other people
sometimes
it bothers me
that I don't seem to be able to let go
of certain things
as easily as I could
or
as quickly as I should
it bothers me
that those things
may still have some sort of influence
over my thoughts
or actions
or feelings
I find myself feeling envious
of those people who can walk away
let go
move on without a second thought
or a moment's notice
there must be a lot of freedom in that
