I remember our first dance-

Do you?

Your oceanic eyes soothing the rings of amber in mine

Do you remember our first kiss?

I still can feel your touch

Do you remember how we loved each other?

Taking away your wallet in the morning,

Hiding your keys in the bathroom,

Smearing your face with my lipstick,

Walking on your feet like a toddler.

I also remember how you slept on my body

I remember smelling you on the sheets

Do you remember how you used to play to me?

Probably not, you don’t remember anything.

You don’t remember my existence either.

You lit up my heart, burned my soul.

Do you remember the wedding we practiced?

Remember any of the vows you wrote to me?

I still wear the ring you gave me, the love you adorned me with,

I look for your fragrance on my clothes,

I hear your name with every beats of my heart.

I love this poem because it shows that memories are important but if you do have people to share those memories it"s meaningless.

"Either I will find a way or I will make a way."

It's so hard to look back and see how someone used to cherish you and then look to the present and see how they treat you with such apathy.

"And if there are contradictions in the world, it is only because man can neither search nor find"

It is clearly observed that you wrote this verse under the pressure of feelings. I think you will have the future of the poet, the main thing is to write sincerely.
