Cease to exist

Cease to exist

A Poem by Bala Gorthi
"

You cease to exist even in my memory

"

A stranger calls every day

I don’t know what to say.

I see only the frozen mist.

You don’t exist, again I insist.

And my dear, don’t knock at my door.

For, dead souls are welcome no more.

I have read about letting go, I have read about breaking up and I have read about laying their memory to rest but I've never read something so final as this.
To desire to wipe them from memory is the ultimate in letting go.
It's tantamount to sacrificing a piece of us to achieve that goal. Like a emotional lobotomy.
No prisoners taken here Bala.

Thank you Michael, for visiting and appreciating..
Reading this brought the thought of one of my past ex boyfriends to memory. As a whole, the message reminds me of how little I meant to him & why he chose to treat me the way he did. I obviously meant nothing to him, though we dated a month and I gave him my virginity, but then...he just shut me out, acted like I didn't exist. As if he never knew me. I would call and text him, just wanting closure, to know why he wanted to end things when I felt everything was going so well. But I soon accepted the fact that he just used me to get what he wanted and leave me out to dry. It took almost a year to come to terms with the acceptance, but it was one of the toughest things I had to go through in my life. Thank you for sharing, it really hit a soft spot for me.

I absolutely loved the rhyming of this poem and the message as well. The poem evokes strong emotion from those who read it. The last line was perfect.

This is wonderful! It's a little short, but I like it all the same. It creates a feeling of empathy for those who know the emotion that you're putting across and the mental picture it paints is vivid. A good read, very original and strong rhyming!

Respect, Bala

The poem leaves me with a feel of your determination yet compassion for those who knock at your door despite not being welcome.

I`d say you did well expressing the essence of determination through your rhymes.
