    There is so much pain in this man yet he draws me to his poetry like a moth to the flame

    I think you mean:

    Close your eyes, yawn. It will be over soon.
    You will forget the poem, but not before
    It has forgotten you. And it does not matter.
    It has been most beautiful in its erasures.
