I Remember Her

December 1, 2011
I remember the promise of the embrace we once shared,
And I remember the cold emptiness she left behind.
I remember the warm feel of her hand in mine,
And I remember the sting of it on my face.
I remember the sweetness of her voice,
And I remember the cut of her words.
I remember our wonderful nights,
And I remember our last night.
I remember her joyful moods,
And I remember her worst.
I remember her,
And I wish I didn't.

"It is better to have loved and lost, than to never love at all." I see you don't agree with this?

The words are just a placeholder. ^_^ I'm in a great relationships, and where this poem came from, I don't know. O_o

Whoo! You enjoyed it! I'm hoping that this poem will get a little more attention, because the more I read it, and the more people who see it, the more I like it. It seems to look better and better every time I read it...

I was going to polish the poem more before I submitted it to the site, but I was goaded into posting it before I thought it was ready. I'm glad you still liked it despite the mistakes that were left. Hopefully I can make up for what few disappointments were here in one of my other poems?

I really like this and I like how the words are organized to look. It's really realitable (for me at least) and this is going in my favroites! Love it.

Thank you for reading! I'm glad you liked the structure of the poem. It was really the only thing I was aiming for in the whole thing. Everybody else seems to think it was the message, but that was really just a placeholder.

First to post a comment. *Shakes head* What a shame. Something much different that your usual style, but certainly not something of lesser quality. The details are strong, and the picture painted is powerful, and unfortunately true in so many cases. Certainly another amazing piece written by Lord Eastep.
