Poetry Tidbit

(From one of my unpublished, unfinished books – The poem is not finished either, this is just a tidbit)

Forget

Sometimes I wish I could forget

Blot out the memories, the feelings

They leave me reeling and lost

Sometimes I wish I could forget

Tear the pages from my life’s book

Spill ink on those moments

Blotting them from memory and soul

 

The pain I suffer from those memories

Seers deep within my heart and mind

The burning brands forcing remembrance

Even when I run away and deny the past

It creeps along and pulls me down

 

Sometimes I wish I could forget

The moments we spent together

The days I saw the reflection of my dreams

In the glitter of your eyes

Sometimes I wish I could forget

The way your hand fitted in mine

Like a sliver of moonlight on an ocean wave

 

It is like a sharpened blade

Drawing forth my life’s force

These memories are lethal

They are no more than ghosts

And yet they feed on my soul

 

Sometimes I wish I could forget…
