Forgetting you

Forgetting you

Your bittersweet kisses

Make me forget

The worse is gone

When I am with you, I'm at my highest

When you’re gone I feel my lowest

Loving you will kill me yet,

I can’t stop

I know having you stay is a hidden sin

But I think of you every day

Your smile entices me

Your eyes invite me

Your laugh excites me

Your cries break me

Hurting you was not planned, but loving you was

I wish I could take it back

Feel your touch

But you are my past

And someone else’s future

You are not mine

And I need to forget you

This is really good! The emotions journey the narrator went on is powerful and sweet. I has a really good message about letting go too.

"Be you, because everyone else is already taken." This quote helps me realize that I'm good enough for anything or anyone. A lot of people talk about how people need to learn how to be themselves, but this quote has a deeper meaning. At least to me, it means more than being comfortable with who you are.

This hit hard...I'm not going to lie, I can only imagine what happened and how you feel, but I can relate to some extent...I, myself, just went through a break up...last Wednesday...and I completely understand how you feel...I want him back but I can't have him...I miss the way he made me smile, the way he made me laugh, the way he made me feel, like no one else in the world...and I would do anything to have that life back, and not still be here sitting in the friend zone waiting on something that may never come back...he wasn't over his ex, but she's my best friend and now that they're together again, I can't help but sit back and be happy...I just want them to be happy, no matter what it takes... i guess

This was powerful. Loving someone then turning away from that love in the end really does hurt, great poem!

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

Dope stuff. Big love from the UK

What I find so relatable about this beautiful poem is knowing that you shouldn’t love someone but end up loving them anyway. And also balancing wanting to hurt and cherish them.

If this was a story
I would say to wait for the ending
But this is a poem
And poems don't have endings

Hey if you ever need someone to talk to im here because believe me I know how much love can push like, people don't seem to understand that love can kill or save and we all gamble in it we that advantage in it because we don't understand.
