Forget My Face

Forget My Face

A Poem by sinNsincerity


just let me be.

Can't you see?

See that I'm not cut out for this anymore...

I take, and take , and take your love.

And then I leave…


just let me be.

Can't you see?

The trust in my heart isn't

as I used to train it to be.

The billow of moans and pillows has vanished

and its lust has now become an old widow.

It's fucked up it’s like that,

and I know that you like that.

But after all I have endure,

I have become stoical.


I beg of thee.

Just let me be.

Can't you see?

But I see how easily

it was for you to

call me a dick,

scratch my face,

bite to break skin.

It thrashes me up inside,

and I would bleed for you

if it could take the pain away.

But it won't.

And that's hidden in plain view,

so let's tear this apart

before we kill each other.

ohhh the violence of obsessing ... far too real ..and the ignorance of continuing to allow the "coming back" .. love the honesty of this one ..and from the perspective of the selfish one ..far to often we hear the whines of the "victim" ... the use of the word "kill" in closing is very harsh and has a shocking effect on me ..only because it happens in reality .. not too long ago in Sioux Falls SD a woman murdered her lover because she wanted to leave...cut her up in pieces and distributed her throughout the cities dumpsters .. she had no previous record ..whew ... powerful poetry says i!

yes..not yet indeed :-


Very powerful and intense. Maybe because it resonates with something I’ve experienced before???
Really enjoyed this

There is so much truth in your words, there is a point in time when you have to say enough is enough and you have captured that so perfectly. It has a little of everything in it... heartache, sarcasm, fear. Amazing piece!

A relationship that both parties know is dead but want to still fix it. That's what I got. At that point its time to let things go. A very deep and honest read.

When love becomes twisted and morphs into a hateful shadow of itself. That is what this makes me think of. Powerful imagery. I liked it.

I love this! The ideas cohere and flow. However, the voice, or rather the language of the poem doesn't seem consistent. I also enjoyed the honesty that pours off the page

Thank you for sharing!

Wow, such a powerhouse of emotion, conveyed with a right hook at the end.

Lust & companionship these days often comes in the disguise of Love. And many fall for it. Felt the unrest, regret and lost faith.
Great work!

I enjoyed this poem. Honest and direct thoughts. Some people do destroy each other. I felt the need to stay and the need to run. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing words and thoughts.

Reads like a passionate letter and conveys pain coming from this union of souls
begging for an ending and wanting to break ties in the absoluteness of no contact again--ever.
