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 Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
