"Don't gain the world and lose your soul....wisdom is better than silver or gold."

"You can always close a book, but you can never close the mind of a writer."

Please don't come my way,
do not look at me and smile.
Pretend you can't see my pain
and just walk away for a while.

I’ll bow my head in defeat,
if you promise to pass me by.
I’ll silence my heart forever,
if you'll look away as I cry.

Just turn your head the other way
and notice anyone but me.
Don’t attempt to make things better,
because there’s no way to set me free.

I don’t want you to look at me anymore,
I don’t want your sorrowful glance.
Please don’t ask for forgiveness;
you’ve blown another chance.

So let it rest, let it be done
watch it sink into our past.
I’m done with you; you’re done with me,
in the end, our memories will last.

The author's comments:
When there is no real sympathy or sorrow in an apology, after a while you don't want anyone to feel sorry for you anymore. When you are hurt, sometimes the thing to do is to forget. 'In The End' if the memories were meant to last, they will.

I really liked this poem!! I didn't think it would be about someone who broke up, though. It might have more meaning if you change the ending and use this ending for another poem. Please look at my work and criticize it!

I liked it but only because I perceived it as you not wanting to be felt sorry for because of your desire to experience your sadness. Obviously I was wrong. 4 stars.

I liked it when you said, "Please don’t ask for forgiveness;
you’ve blown another chance."
It reminds me of someone who I once cared for that didn't really care about me.

It's funny how emotions are evoked when you read something you can relate to. This is truly a wonderful piece.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

This is such a great poem. It's sad, but beautifully written. 
I can relate. The emotions? Completely spot on.

<3 :)

It was beautiful! I most certainly did not deserve that comment from you, or even the chance for my writing to be read by you when your own is as magnificent as that of a professional! I love it!
