Forget Me Not.

Forget Me Not.

A Poem by Leah Everett

Dedicated to a special someone. <3


I was seeking the hearts beat,

You know that thing we call love.


Every soul but mine has uncovered it.

Though I know where it stands.


It is positioned in my vision,

As close as sin is to me right now.


The crystal wall you have built so sturdily,

The cracks embroidered with false hope.


My apologies, for ever acting snappish,

For not having the courage to be there.


If I had acted sooner, my darling, we may have been happy.

Illusions no longer existing.


Are you like that? Promise me you are.

Am I the focal point of your wishes?


And when it was time to face the music,

Your back was turned, your features I could not see.


All because you wouldnt allow it,

All because denying was your strong point.


When tears bleed between my lashes,

A blurry figure sits before me.


It is you, sweetheart, I miss you dearly,

If only I had the chance, the chance to tell all to you.


Never shall pressure overload you,

Never shall I let a fear win you over.


No day has passed without the memory of you,

Are you thinking in sync?


Chest is tight, as I let imaginary arms comfort,

You mask your frailty well.


Only i have unsealed it,

And i feel heaven high to love you.


Even if your refuse to share the same air as me,

I will always produce your oxygen.


So stay here, dont leave me alone,

For the darkness scares me, your hand is all I need.


A droplet of joy, flooded me inside,

When I knew it was I who made you smile.


Regretful for exposing my own secret,

Leaving you with no choice.


Sadly I understand the answers to the questions I ask,

Though never shall I give in,

Until you listen to my internal emotions.


Forever love, forget me not.

Wow, this was BEAUTIFUL. I loved this poem so much. Every word you said some powerful emotions through me, and I liked how you were challenging your subject to spill his guts for you. Very well written. I liked it so much I'm adding it to my Favorites :)

Loving someone who is no longer there must be difficult. Knowing there is no relief for the wants, needs and desires. This was a sad write but also a good one because loving someone is just a beautiful thing and the things you want are just romantic.
