"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.

This is full of so much feeling and heart, I love how the poem just comes together, it has really beautiful symbolism. I love the message!!! I don't know about you but my best poems come out of being free with my writting and I try to avoid changing to much. I think it takes away from the purity. Again you did a great job writing this!!! :)I'm excited to read more!:)

Your comment says it the best. Goodbye and I'm sorry can never decribe every feeling and all that you wish was and could have been.

This poem is real and when you read it you never doubt that fact. Your writing is incredible!
