Lost the pages

A Poem by Yann Bellemare

Lost the pages

Of what I wanted

To say

Something about

Love forgotten


A goodbye never said

A bit of butterscotch

Without the butter

A bit of bitter humor

To cure a stray


It lost its meaning

Along the way

Some words

Are best

Never read

Your author note makes me smile. :)
I think this is very relatable, sometimes I think back on all the things I could have/should have said but after it's all said and done it's best to let sleeping dogs lie. Nicely presented here.

I really like the first three lines the best. I don't know, for some reason, they draw me in.

I really like the idea of this... "They" say some things are better left unsaid, so I guess the same could be true of some things are better left unread... In the heat of the moment, when pain and emotions are at high intensity we tend to say things we might regret, or don't really mean. After we have had time to sit and think on them, it really loses its thunder.. It has a nice flow, and an easy, pensive tone to it. Overall, a though-provoking, creative piece that is well-written.

"Something about love forgotten, a goodbye never said" - I relate to these lines personally. I think it's said when there's "unfinished business". I like the play on words with butterscotch, butter, bitter in the third stanza and I agree that some words are best never read. This is a crisp piece of poetry that says it like it is. Nicely done :) Penny

the last few words reminds me so much of the saying: "Some words are best left unsaid." and in this piece it says never read, yes perhaps it is best to left alone to feel, not read nor to say it, i guess it is the feeling is are best to be felt... profound and expressive, thanks for sharing!

I read this a couple times before the intensity kicked in. I like the metaphors used and it reads quite well too. Musings about not having the chance draw a clean slate. Remnant thoughts make for remnant feelings. Great piece, I'm sure many of us can relate :)

If I added you, it means I have read and appreciated your work. Don't add me expecting to get reviews. I am very picky and I don't review for the sake of it. Your true traveller finds bored.. more..
