A Poem by J.S. Oh

Will you forgive me for carrying the memory of you this long,
For calling you into my dreams and pushing you away despite it all?
I feel the weight of your stare, even after all these years,
Or perhaps that's just the burden of guilt, of a love that left us in tears.

Will you forgive me for weaponizing the memory of you,
For hiding behind your broken heart and deciding it safer to never love at all?
Fear hardened my heart and grew thorns a mile long.
I thought I was wise, but oh what a fool I've become.

Will you forgive me for falling in love with the memory of you,
For being blind to your innocent affections? I blame my youth.
But now I can't help but wonder if I'll ever meet another like you.
I'm so sorry, if you still carry the memory of me too.

I still carry a torch for a couple of past loves so this poem really resonated with me. Very nice piece of poetry. Thank you for sharing your work with us.
