Think of Other Things

Updated on June 18, 2013

I try so very hard

To think of other things

Anything else really

Movies I like

Jokes that make me laugh

My favorite songs

Books I've read

But my mind keeps coming back to him

I can't even go an hour

And I try so hard

And I'm so exhausted

If only there was a pill to take

To keep my mind from replaying

The same thoughts

Over

And Over

And Over

And Over

Again

      I could feel the pain in your Beautiful, yet Poignant Poem Koshaugh. Time, and eventually a new Love, is the best Healer...But take time to learn from this hurt. I too, Voted UP and Beautiful.
