Why am I Thinking of You?


Why do I find myself thinking of you?
When all I want to do is forget what we've been through
The pain you gave me
Saying it would save me
Trying to erase me from memory

But how could I forget my first serious love?
Only just a year ago you were all I'd ever think of
Then you threw it in my face
This love now turned to hate
And all I really want is for you to go away

You promised me that we would be together forever
Oh and I should have known better
Promises from you don't mean anything
But a promise is a promise to me
Although I scratched off all the promises I said I'd keep

So why am I still here thinking of the pain you caused me?
I thought that it was over and I was free
Instead I'm here listening to a sad little song
Trying very hard not to sing along
Because If I do, I know I'd only fall

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
