I'd rather forget


the sad face of truth
is a bitter pill to swallow
oft it's something i avoid
rather'n face by myself

like a forgotten friend
you meet after the many years
and at the precise moment
you forget his name

oh sad oh sad the times
i get into these ones
and later i pick over my thoughts
to pick out that one name

and out it pops from nowhere in my brain
to pain me further
because it was no longer then

so I'd much rather forget
than remember that when
as in this now
when i missed a line back then

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
