Forgetting you

Forgetting you

Your bittersweet kisses

Make me forget

The worse is gone

When I am with you, I'm at my highest

When you’re gone I feel my lowest

Loving you will kill me yet,

I can’t stop

I know having you stay is a hidden sin

But I think of you every day

Your smile entices me

Your eyes invite me

Your laugh excites me

Your cries break me

Hurting you was not planned, but loving you was

I wish I could take it back

Feel your touch

But you are my past

And someone else’s future

You are not mine

And I need to forget you

Favorite Quote:
Her heart was an open book with beautiful pages and detailed lettering. She wanted people to read her story in hopes that it would make them write their own. Instead, every person who came across the pages of her heart ripped out their favorite story and took it with them. They folded back pages and bent up corners. They signed their name with sloppy writing and with a simple 'goodbye'. This book is now tucked away in the darkest parts of her, because no one wants to read a tragic story with a bad ending.

Beautiful! Inspiring.

Literally just be yourself. You are amazing and all anybody wants is for you to be yourself.

I was scrolling through the pages and pages of endless poems by named and unnamed people, growing tired of how many poems I had read, but none hit me quite like this one has. Very special poem we have here.

I find appeal to this, the idea of expressing heartbreak entices me so but the idea of admitting fault and flaw entices me even more, far more than simply saying one had there heart broken, but you actually admitted your fault of the matter and the remorse to come. Good show I say.

I feel this with a passion, someone you cannot have, yet you yearn and cry for them, and knowing it was a sin yet you still committed it, for the sake of the feelings you had for that person till it was time to rid them.

This is really good! The emotions journey the narrator went on is powerful and sweet. I has a really good message about letting go too.
