I Am Made of Memories 

By Nupur Kudapkar 

i am made of memories 

radiant and sorrow alike 

filled with tear stains

accompanied with bright smiles  


i ponder 

upon the effects that memories have on humans 

especially the ones that coarse through our bodies like wildfires 

is that what keeps humans alive? 

the hope that the memories of the past 

the ones that made our bodies feel infinite 

might present themselves again
