Remembering To Forget You


Remembering To Forget You

Last month my nostalgic
heart made me recall the
happiness I thought would
never end.

Last week I trembled at the
bittersweet recollection of
your fingertips stroking my
bare chest.

Last night I sighed when the
unused pillow in my lonely
bed reminded me of your
intoxicating scent.

Last chance to recover from
this painful loss. Tomorrow
I’ll try my best to remember
to forget you

Yesterday, while reviewing my earlier posts, I found inspiration in one of the few poems that I truly love.Β Never Meant For You

Disclaimer: This is pure fiction. Β Thankfully, Allie is still by my side.

    1. I have to add these disclaimers on some of my posts, to avoid the two dozen questions that would follow. Many of my readers are so familiar with my wife any our relationship, the questions would never

      1. Yes, I can see why you add those disclaimers, as the same thought ran through my mind…..and I wasn’t even yet aware of you and your wife being all right. πŸ™‚ Still, you write with compassion and intuition on the subject. I actually haven’t experienced it to the degree that you write it; however, the having to let go had similar reverberations. Timing and other things not lining up. Just life. I also wish you a great day. πŸ™‚


        1. Sorry, for the delay in my response. I have had so many problems losing comments in my blog. And after a recent accident, I have blurred vision that has made it difficult to keep up with the messages. I hope you aren’t offended by my late reply.

          Thank you so much for tsaking the time out to read and comment. Your profound words and thoughts are appreciated. Thanks for stopping by. Be well and happy.

  2. Obviously some very passionate poetry can come out of real-life inspiration, but sometimes distance, objectivity & fiction can really distill some feelings that we wouldn’t otherwise reach.

  4. This poem came to my note at a perfect time…. Just some 49 hours ago my love my Dream my Muse left me and hey I was wandering what I could feel now, do now and these words are as if my inner feelings at this very moment. Some words, some actions, some incident in life really makes us too strong. Thank you

      1. It is not easy neither it is fun but I think such incident in life take place so that we learn something and grow more stronger.
        Nothing is lost much till we accept the false idea of having lost everything and make ourselves weaker by thinking negatively due to these incident in life… I just am thankful to her that she showed me what love is and I thus realize love is such a beautiful thing that it can never make us sad.
        Your words are really beautiful, thank you for sharing and thank you for taking time to care. πŸ’š


        1. Hope you slept well. Got home long after you were asleep. Couldn’t get my computer running either. So I never saw your replies in gmail.

          Hope Amanya is better. Hope you rested well.

          Missed you so much. Let me tell you I suddenly lost wifi in a city that prides itself on being the capitol of the world.
