Noushin Nuri | November 5, 2020

If you are a Bollywood fan, take a big iron rod and hit your head.

Your memories might be erased.


If you were a student who excelled in all things scientific,

Try recalling the percentage of hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen in air.

These memories always get erased.


If you’re a person like me who meets a lot people every day,

And can remember their faces, their hobbies, but their names? 

The memories get erased.



Memories are like the five-year-old me,

Who did a lot of things on her own, but she was not to be forced.



Memories are like the five-year-old me,

Who refused to eat what she was given but craved what was forbidden.


They say the brain is a house with a limited space,

But who’s a permanent resident and who’s a paying guest?

You can only update the guestbook when somebody checks in,

But the name of a guest, by your choice, can’t be erased.


We make memories as we live,

But we don’t know how long the memories live.

Yes, you’ve burned the letters; she has flushed your photo,

But, but, but, the innocent heart is still attempting a veto.


So dear ‘that particular memory’, you won’t be erased?

“I will be, but only when I will get replaced.”
