I Want To Forget You - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

I want to forget you
I feel completely defeated
I want to forget you
Like you never existed
Yet you still haunt me out of the blue

I am trapped in a loop
Addicted to you the cook-a-hoop
Sweet and sour you are by the hour
Forgetting you seems beyond my power
Unexpectedly you still torment me for true

Those times we had that were passionate
When time itself seemed completely endless
Kisses between us brewed amongst many a love debate
While our body to body embraces bore life to gladness

But I want to forget you
Start my life anew

But I want to forget you
And find a love that is true

But I want to forget you
For that moment is now due

I want to forget the smiles and tears
And all the blissful months and years
When we built lovely castles in the air
Constantly bathing in a loving atmosphere

I want to abandon you in my house of thoughts
I want to dissolve you in my liquidated vein
No pain- no gain is insane
A sentimental nonsense of the brain

I want to forget you!
I want to forget you!
Like the night forgets the sun
Erase away our memories of fun

If only you knew
The pain I felt once we were through
In you my heart once rejoiced
Now forgetting you is not a choice
