Memories of past relationships are bittersweet objects that we’re not quite sure what to do with. If we could, we would erase these memories from ourselves because they are too painful to remember a la Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. But unfortunately, the fact that these times contain memories that gave us bliss and sunny-dripped happiness, are hard to separate from the bad times that resulted in the relationship to come to a hard end.
This is the feeling that this video captures perfectly. With the poem written by Beau Sia, video edited & shot by The Taqwacores director Eyad Zahra, and music composed by Dawen, this is perhaps one of the best poem videos I’ve seen in a long, long time.
So watch this video. Take it in. And whatever feelings you may get that comes from this video, cherish it for as it is (even if it’s painful) because these feelings are undeniable reminders that we truly exist in this world.
