Release Date: 14 August 2022


In 'City of Lost Memories', memory is a theme that keeps recurring on every page. What is memory? Is memory static, or is it in a constant state of flux? This is the concept the poems strive to explore. The poet reaches to the past as he remembers to create a present that will be remembered.

In 'City of Lost Memories', memory is many things. It is a burden and a treasure; it haunts and it brings excitement. Talking about how important it is, the first poem begins with an appeal:

'Don’t wash me away from your memory.'

 

Memory is what keeps people and events alive in our minds. And this is why it can be both a blessing and a curse. And it's this multiplicity of what memory can be that 'City of Lost Memories’ explores.
