Picture Memories

The pain, it hurts so deeply,
The memories bounded inside of me,
His imprint still firm upon me,
And I cannot let go, I'm sorry.

Hidden within my heart
are 'picture memories' like art.
Like true works, they’re beautiful and mystifying
And then yet, they’re painful and agonizing

The ghosts of what you and I were
haunts me, wounds me, is there a cure?
Something to erase the memories
that toy my mind inside of me

For you know not who you are
You whose memories of me have gone far
you who cannot ever recall
any thoughts of "us" at all.
As now, as then, there's only you, not I
In your heart and in your mind

I won't ask you to remember me
as the dead dont ask for renewed memories
And you, I must let go
‘cause my side’s story, is one you'll never know.

With a heavy laden heart,
I bid you most ardently bye,
My dearest picture memories
Fade now, beloved, loved history

This is freaking amazing. I really suck at poetry so anybody who has such facility w words like u really amazes me. Wow. I think great articles like urs get skipped over just cause ppl dont like sifting thru stuff, but it's really really great, a lot better than some of the "5-star" stuff i've read. I'm in sorta this mood now, so i like it even more. :) You're really quite amazing, keep it up! Read one of mine? Maybe "Just a piece of me"?

omg thank you so much! I really appreciate it. This poem was on the website's first page before but no one rated it even though 90 people saw it..so i was thinking that maybe it just wasn't good enough. Thank you very much! I definitely check out your stuff!:)

No problem. I'm being totally honest, it's one of the best pieces i've read here...ever. I'm not entirely sure how some of the stuff that's "top rated" gets that way lol. This is really great though.
