"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee


There was a time my heart belonged to you,
You filled my every thought and left me blind.
My love was misplaced though burned strong and true,
You played with my heart then left it behind.

Despite bitter pain, sweet thoughts still linger,
Ghosts of the past choking the air I breathe;
So I give the past the middle finger,
Ignore the nostalgia starting to seethe.

I look for comfort in meaningless things,
To hide reminders that nothing’s the same.
My reputation flying, a pair of wings
I am a monster, without any shame.

I’m too high to remember that speck of joy between you and me-
A forgotten glance, a fading glimmer I now wish I could see.


The author's comments:
Again, I'm trying to broaden my horizons by writing a different format. If I did AWFULLY bad and you didn't catch the meaning, this is about a guy who I loved. It ended pretty terribly, so I moved on by messing around but became so consumed by my obsession to move on that I forgot the happy times along with the sad. Comment pretty please!

Love the titles you have they seem to just drag you in, and then the words just pull you deeper as you read. I really enjoyed your format. Don't doubt yourself you got the message out in an understandable way.

I like it, but again, I have to say, break up the lines. Maybe I'm just biased because that's how I tend to write. I don't know. Anyway, this is yet another of your good poems.

My favorite line in this is the one about giving the past the middle finger I like your explained meaning behind this and I love that you're trying to use different formats in your writing! I actually really like this sonnet a lot...but then again I always like your poems :)

I adore this. Simply, wow.

I would love to give the past the middle finger...

My mind has a way of blocking the memories I subconsciously wish to forget. Though nothing is ever truly forgotten, I find that certain memories seem to fade as time goes on and the hurt slowly goes away.

Whenever I try to remember, all I can see is a misty haze. Though I thought they were forever, these lost memories put me in a daze. My heart wills me to keep up my desolate spirits, as I think of those wonderful ones that I hold dearest, but my mind is troubled, and so forgotten they will stay. I still longingly try to retrieve those memories. Always, I'll do so until I see a few glimmerings of my past, and when this happens, I know I'll live to see a brighter day, because I will not have forgotten to always remember.
