Memory Lane

January 28, 2013
As we pass in the hall ways our eyes meet
For what seems like two seconds to you
Is the world for me
In those two seconds a flood of feelings drown me out
And carry me out of this world
To a place I like to call
Memory lane
Your sparkling blue eyes bring back
To so many memories of something that once was
Something that I think about everyday
Even though you don’t even remember my name
No matter how much I try
To shove it away
And just move on
I can’t
I can’t let you go
But more importantly
I won’t let you go
My heart longs for the attention you once gave me
Every time I see you with a different girl
I can actually feel my heart break
Surely those two seconds are up
And reality is restored
And I just close up my suitcase in my head
That holds all of my secrets
But most importantly
Its where I hold You

You have the really awesome ability of channeling loads of emotion into your writing. I think that this is your best ability--you know just the right way to write to pluck at someone's heart strings. Keep it up!

This is amazing, and I can totally relate! I have someone just like this in my life:) ... For being "messy" I actually thought this was well put together, maybe a few mistakes.. Comment on one of my poems?

cute, I think it is a little messy, just that the length of the lines don't flow together as much as I wish they did(I know it's free verse) but I think it's a pretty story in there!
