Teach Me, My Love

Teach me how to walk

and pretend not to care,

how to go through your day,

not imagine me there,

how to throw me away,

shove me there in your past,

hide me under some lie

if indeed someone asks.

Teach me how to forget

all those kisses we shared,

how to drive to your right

instead of your left,

how to shut down your heart

and pretend not to hear,

when I whisper your name

every night in your ear.

Teach me how to be cruel,

how to hurt and bring tears

to the one that you love,

to the one that you fear.

Teach me how to feel nothing,

how to make truth untrue,

teach me my love, teach me,

teach me how to be you.

Thank you, James. I am not a follower of coolness or pretense. I'm very open, loyal and exhausting when in love. I was venting. Glad you liked it.

Beautiful and awesome.It flows smoothly like a stream but at the end I was taken aback by the waterfall ' teach me how to be you'.He is a bad model to follow or to be in awe of his destructive power.Stay who you are and be proud of it.Don t change or let others change you.I voted up.

wow, this is beautiful poetry , my dream lover . I found your comment on another hub and your words touched me . I write love poetry and this is something in the same context that i would write .

I am so surprised that no one else has seen this poem and left a comment , but i realize that when you write something as sweet and profound as this, most are intimidated to leave a comment . What a woman you are, that is the highest compliment a man can give a woman. Beautiful, intelligent and a poet , WOW what more could a man want . A dream come true. .
