I'Ll No Longer Know You By Your Name - Poem by david lessard

I will no longer know you by your name,
You've proved to me that it no longer matters;
You've caused me nothing but misery and shame,
Now I've respite against your mad and angry chatters.

I will not conjure up the memory that's hate,
You've shown me that it wrecks true love;
I will not ponder over why the mystery of fate,
Left me alone and cast aside, just like a shove.

What's important now, is that I quickly heal,
That includes the blotting out of all that's past;
And dreams that I know that are not real,
The thoughts of you are those that will not last.

I will not bring to mind the images now gone,
You will not be a thing to be retained;
The torture that we shared went on and on,
We had to split apart or go insane.

No, I'll no longer know you by your name,
The hurt that you inflicted I will shed;
The sadness you've caused is on the wane,
After all you have done and all you've said.
