Forgetting You

Forgetting is harder than it ought to be
Letting go is the only way to be free.
It’s not about being small but acting strong
That’s where I go wrong.

We all think we are a diamond in the rough
I just can’t be small, got to act tough.
Moving on seems completely absurd
But life goes on.

Forget you I will, or I’ll try at the least
Can’t be small but strong, I won’t face defeat.
Forget you I can’t but I’ll try once again
Just one more time.

I can wish, I can hope but it just won’t change
My voice just can’t quite match that range.
Life without lemons won’t be the same
Let’s make believe.

Arms brush and eyes meet
Hearts approach but only one takes the leap.
You regress but I can’t go back
Not like before.

You’re always around but can’t find the time-
To see that this melody is more than a rhyme.
Time stands still when I’m with you
Why not reverse?

But forgetting is harder than it ought to be.

I really hope that this poem is relatable. I know that almost any time I have some sort of drama in my life, I can always reconnect with this poem.

I like emotions because their all related- and when you can properly tranfer the emotion through poetry, it reaches the person on a high level because they can associate.

I need my diary back, please. Just kidding, but you really have captured the essence of my world. I need to let go and forget, but i can't do that. This is beautiful and I highly encourage more writing.
