'Rememorries'


I forget.

I remember.
I remember what I relize.

The forgetfulness inclined.
The things forgotten left alone.

For you I can not revive them nor will you find them.

When young and forgetful some say it is of youth.
When old and forgetful some say it is of growing age.
When twitling away you come into an age.
When forgetting you don't remember then.

I in it's non-existent ways.

You far alone.
You that is there nor the you that is there.
You are not so, far when alone.
You are there when you are not alone.

To remember and forget.
To forget and remember.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The title is a made up word. I used to have a speech problem. It was not fondness of the word that I out grew but, the word I out grew. Which, is why it is the title. I am forgetful. I remember some things. Please comment at will and with honesty.

    Life is all about forgetting and remembering. Somethings we
    would like to forget and some we would like to remember. At
    least we have a choice, most of us anyway. Very inspiring. (Report) Reply

    I used to have a speech problem also I had to break myself away from saying things like thirst but with an F or instead of saying first I would say them with a TH. Same thing with dyslexia numbers, words and letter get jumbled sometime. So I get the poem now a lot more since I read the poet's notes. Which reminds me of a joke a I just remembered.

    So a dyslexic guy walks into a bra. Nice poem thx for the memories =P (Report) Reply
