Cratered

There is literal
Meaning, and there
Is associative meaning
(What it means to you).
Unfortunately, once
Something gains
Associative meaning-
A memory attached
To it- it can be
So hard to let go.
Words, songs, tastes,
Smells, names can be
Forever altered, and
When you don't want
Them to be, Every
Day can be a hassle.
Every moment can be
A memory. You can
Look in the mirror
And see yourself:
As you are, as you
Were, and as you've
Changed. You can see
The impact that
Others have left on
Your life- how can you
Remove a crater
From the surface of
Your personality,
Once it has been
Hit by a meteor?
