Remember To Forget - Poem by Shawn Montgomery

Sometimes in order to forget
We must remember

She was
Once, a flower amongst a field
Until a sick man fulfilled
A twisted need of a sin.
Years of happenings turned,
To Years of memories turned,
To Years of nightmares turned,
A Flower,
To a scared sleepless mind,
A mind so easily tampered
That the scratches made scars,
Un-erasable scars.

Sometimes in order to forget
We must remember

He was
Once, a simple shove that
Over years turned to bruises
That over years turned to hate,
For a father he once loved.
For a father who Dared
To fill a growing heart
With the Drink
A father who now has no son
Now, an ember awaiting kindling
His depression on edge of every
Twigged or logged event
Awaiting that ever shove,
To burn.

Sometimes in order to forget
We must remember

They are
The results of separate tragedies
That were flung together by a hope
That these ingredients would react,
And counter react,
By a hope that
Without the other one
The temple would fall.
Two Halves of different shapes
Planned to fulfill
An empty slot
Of each others'
Broken Memories

Sometimes in order to forget
We must remember each other
