Resurfacing of The Prawn!

You were there and you seemed to care,
To even speak I did not dare.
It used to be the other way round,
Till what I had for you ran aground:
When passion, concern, and smiles abounded;
That yesteryear, when we were still true bonded.
I wonder why I dreamt tonight,
Of you and me, holding us tight,
Of when we knew not tears or fright.

H would say the thoughts are residual,
Memories on a different level,
Like the slimy grease beneath black gravel. (Ok, that’s what I would say since I’m a meanie at times…)

Subconscious thought begone at once,
I will soon see the break of dawn,
I will not feel for you, bloody prawn.

And tonight if dreams do come again,
I hope it won’t be of you, my bane.
And if they should ever return the pain,
I might just have to rewire my brain.

My face right now,  while reading this bit of utter idiocy, two weeks after I wrote it. And ‘rewire my brain’?! WTH was I thinking?!! ~Bwekkss!~

Anyway, the past is the past, so here’s to a better tomorrow! Ganbatte-yo! :oD

The Prawn Must Be Brought Down!! A scene from District 9 :P

On a different note, have you guys heard of selective amnesia before? Pretty cool, even if I do say so myself… ;) 
I wonder how one acquires that skill because I am cursed with almost elephant-like memory, at least in non-academic fields!! :P

And I think I overdid the links a bit this time! :)

I have heard of the mention of selective amnesia :)

I follow your link and read something about an idiot, or no, it is actually an idiom.

That's the problem of preoccupation or sub-consciousness.

Are you studying something about these?

I have the same issue Losh:D

I can remember small details of the past so clearly, in so much detail, I do not know what the hell is wrong with me! Just stuff which which isn't of any use to any one. Taking up the little space I've got.

I love the post. The picture is excellent. Loved District 9 as well.

Lets try and get in to the Mother ship to fix our selves =P

we can remember a lot of things if we try because apparently scientists discovered we use less than 10% of our brain's capacity.

Mei Teng:
Yep, it's existence is still much debated though :)

The idiom about the memory of an elephant? Hehe.. yeah, it's an expression of sorts :D And no, my studies don't involve the subconscious... not directly at least! :D

'..stuff which isn't useful to anyone..' LOL. I can relate completely!
Glad you enjoyed the post! :)

Yeah, the human brain's cool. Even Einstein used a mere 7(?) percent of it, and us laymen (women?) use approx. 1-2%. Why all the excess brain parenchyme then? :P

"Rewire your brain"... hmmm! I liked the poem though... :) Down with the prawn! :D

Haha.. Thanks. Welcome to the Anti-Prawn Organisation, Chavie! ;)
