Two Voices

A Poem by diaphanous
"

I can't forget

"
Happiness made me think
of all the times
we were together.

Sadness made me remember
how much you cried
when I broke your heart.

Happiness told me
to reach out to you
and ask forgiveness.

Sadness reminded me
that you ignored
every message I sent.

Happiness forced me
to still care for you
hoping you might still care too.

Sadness showed me
that you already loved 
somebody new.

If I believed Happiness,
I'd call you.
If I trusted Sadness,
I'd forget you.
But they're both liars
and I can't move on.

Really enjoyed the last stanza....I enjoyed the playfulness of the back and forth sadness/happiness, but those last two lines bring it all home ;)

Oh the ending is sublime. I am in search of contentment- the blending of the two- I have not found it yet though.

Nice work you've penned here.

Every relationship is bittersweet, but each one helps us grow and learn... we can cherish the good times but still have to go on for the rest of life passes us by.
Love the poem cause I can really relate.

I can't really give a good review, because I don't know what to say. I guess whwen you can't trust your emotions, you have to listen to cold hard logic
