A little bit of Voldemort

July 25, 2007

And we all put a little bit of ourselves in all those little things around us.

We put our memories in that torn dog eared comic book from when we were ten and hide it in the cupboard lest anyone borrow it.
We may turn thirty and yet every morning we drink our tea from the mickey-mouse printed coffee mug that our dearest buddy gifted to us on our birthday when we were fifteen because he could not afford anything more.
We might not wear it now, but in the dark recesses of our drawers we still treasure that tiny pendant which once adorned our necks but which if worn now, will make us stoop with the weight of all the love it once carried.
And the cheap plastic ring that we sometimes wear because it reminds us of someone else in a different place and time.

And the little bits of our souls that we put in those around us and forge those connections with those whose souls we attach to our consciousness

Guess there is a little bit of Voldemort in us all.
