Forget to Remember


If one day you plan on forgetting me:

Focus on not remembering,
when your hands clenched mine
as we marched the street-less sidewalks.

Or how your lips sealed mine,
when words could not
describe the synch of our thoughts.

Forget the filler words in those page-less books we read,
only concealing honest lies of foreign love affairs.
Happy endings that only shaped my dreams to a distorted reality.

But most importantly,
forget the time you wasted pursuing a failed goal.
Think not of reminiscing as you read these words.
Remember, I forgot already.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
