30, a collection of poems by Jaachi Anyatonwu banner

the gap will grow wider,
& the vacuum deeper

but,
you shall find joy
in memories made.

there are things we just can’t
change:

like everything good
that wouldn’t last

like expectations
never met

like friends
turned enemies

like a lover
now a stranger

like an old woman
abandoned by children who suckled
her fallen breasts

people will breeze into your life
& leave
as fast as they come

leaving behind beautiful
memories that shall linger

for a long time

as time snail by
you shall learn to miss ’em less

the gap will grow wider,
& the vacuum deeper

but,
you shall find joy
in memories made.
