I Wanted to Forget You


Writer, author, short story writer, poet, youtuber, blogger.


If i were possible

I wanted to forget you;
and so get used to the lack of light;
and if it were possible; to murder the lassitude.

To die for a instant;
and be reborn in complete amnesia,
I do not lie down in the dementia

To arise in me the restlessness;
to cover the mist of my youth;
and only give way to confrontation,
of a new life;
free of your ungrateful soul,


The statue

I return to the cold water of reality,
and I drown in this anguish and calamity.
I return from the living imagination;
where I am always captive.

I return from of the crazy dreams;
that levitate in the air.
They are gifts in the lap of an abandoned life!
From a life that there is nothing!

body attitude and spiritual
of a statue in the water;
that drowns without remedy,
because, is made of tedium.

Yes I truly believe so too.

Hello! (Being PU) If it is true, the mind becomes clear in those moments, and the idealization vanishes, leaving that person without his disguise, as is. Thank you for your comments.

Being PU from India on October 01, 2018:

some memories do not leave us how much ever we try. some darkness remains special in those fragile moments of despair. The if's and but's of our mind and heart create a 1000 possible scenarios. yet some things never change back to what they were again. - Being Pu (in memory of a bygone relationship)

Hello Mark, if that's the case, it will be interpreted that way, because the protagonist woman realizes her emotions and confronts the situation emotionally. Thanks for comment.

Can relate to this poem of wanting to start over with a clear mind.
