don't ever ask

Impossible - Poem by don't ever ask

forget your former passions,
forget what you've lived,
forget everything that harms you,
forget how she used to smile.
please forget everything,
this i beg to you,
i don't want you to compare me,
i don't wan't you to make false expectations,
i don't desire a hopeless heart,
i don't desire a wretched body,
nor do i desire, someone's left over,
i desire you,
not a mere shadow,
not a mere fragment,
i don't want you to change,
i want you.
i don't lust mere ashes,
i lust you.
use me if you want to,
consume me if you will,
martirize me.
i know you want me,
i know you need me,
i know you love me,
but you carry a great burden upon you soul,
that remembrance of what used to be,
is your cross,
your enemy,
my enemy,
your misfortune,
my obstacle,
your gloominess,
my challenge,
your self-destructive nature,
my obsession,
yet your heartache,
your deep longing for what used to be,
are what afflicts me,
what mortifies me,
what slaughters me,
what makes everything,

    Wow! This is the strongest thing I ever heard! And the deepest and the most passionate way to put it. I hope nobody would ever dare to ask you after this :) . Awesome poem! Frankly, at first I thought it was anonymously written for me. (Report) Reply
