I'll no more be grieving


I can forget you! I can end the pain,
I can stop the bleeding;
I'll not speak again your name,
You'll never see me needing.

Too much anger, too much sadness,
Too many nights of no embraces;
I had to flee and end the madness,
To blot out hurt and all it's traces.

I'll never speak your name aloud,
Your banished from my mind;
I can lose myself in any crowd,
And new friends, I can find.

Your out the door, gone from me,
Your memories are ending;
Your face is now just history,
And this message I am sending.

Consider this, my final letter,
A note of bitter leaving;
I'm off to something better,
And no more, will I be grieving.

    We've all been there. Not a bad poem but a couple of unnecessary commas on the last line of the third and the last line of the poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
