Goodbye For Good. - Poem by Violet Eztli

I had forgotten of my sorrows,
and of my tears
and of anything that would make me cry
I only knew of affection and tenderness
because that was what my mother taught me
when I was young
I never suffered
I never cried
I was happy

My life was so different
it was something beautiful, something divine
and full of happiness
I had forgotten the troubles of the past
Until I met you

When I met you
I saw life painfully again
I'm not lying, I won't ever lie
For just a moment, you made me happy
although it was too late that I understood
that I should not have loved you
because I think of you
and am thinking of you
more and more often
than every single one
of my precious yesterdays

You were artful with your sad eyes
But I don't want to see them ever again
I don't want to see you ever again
And now I will do what I can
in order stop loving you

I do not seek to take from you
The strength in my hands is no more
and because you ride your soul
with such loose reins,
the world is yours, alone
and you are to leave me now

Once more, you will want to look
into my black eyes
that you loved so much
and love so much
but you are to forget me now,
forget I ever existed
and in return,
I will do the same for you

    Explicitly direct filled with a melancholy ache, yet full of anger for the goodness in a love that is no more. Very deep emotion, grasps the mind totally with it's rhythm. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
