Forget This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Forget his name, Forget his face

Forget his kiss and warm embrace

Forget his love that once was true

Forget he was fire, and sent roses to you

Forget the time you were together

Remember now, he is gone forever

Forget you cried the whole night long

Forget him when they play your song

Forget the way he used to talk

Forget you memorized his walk

Forget the way he held your hand

Forget the sweet things if you can

Forget the way he loved you too

Remember now, there's someone new

Forget the time, it went so fast

Remember now, it's in the past

Forget the things you planned to do

Remember now, she loves him too

Forget the thrill when he walks by

Forget the time he made you cry

Forget he said, "I'll leave you never."

Remember now, he's gone forever.

I wrote this in high school. I have proof! I submitted this into a contest in early 2000's (2004 I think) & it got blasted ALL over the internet! Frustrated

The internet did not exist when this was written.

You are a plagarist.

If you submitted this in a contest that you won you are also a cheater as well as a thief. Save your theatrics and think how "frustrated" the real author feels.

This is not an esoteric poem. Teen Ink apparently did no research before publishing blatently stolen property under someone elses name in print format and I would be hesitant to submit any original work to this site.

I don't know who wrote it, but I know it was published in a magazine "seventeen" back in the 70's because my sister wrote it on posterboard and it hung in our room for many years.
