Forgetting You: A Poem

Updated on January 9, 2014
Source


Your touch left invisible marks on my skin,

Like tattoos, but with enduring pain,

Because I’ll never feel your embrace again,


There are still traces of you left within my soul,

I try to evict them, but they still stand there,

Embedded like rusted nails hammered into the floor,


Someday I won’t remember that we once loved,

But you’ll still be hiding in the dark places,

Confined in all the broken spaces I’ve forgotten.

      You describe that feeling so well in your poem. It is something that most people can relate to, too.

      frogyfish: This was based more on a description of a feeling than an actual experience I went through. Thank you for your encouraging comment!

      Ah, I'm sorry. But it is Life, isn't it...

      And really, I think you will remember...because you will eventually return to look into those hidden places.

      But Time...does...fade the pain; even though the scar remains, it no longer hurts the same.

      Beautiful expression! And your music was sadly lovely too.
