Forgotten - Poem by Linda Ori

I used to be the one you chose
To tell your troubles to,
I listened to your heartfelt words
When you were down and blue;

I was always there for you
Like you were there for me,
But lately things have changed - you're not
The way you used to be;

In your words a sadness
Has stripped the color bare;
And all the warmth that used to be
Just simply isn't there;

Words that used to mean so much
No longer dear to you,
I'm not sure that you hear them now -
The way you used to do;

You seem to be preoccupied
Your mind no longer here,
You've moved into another space
You're motives are unclear;

The pattern now repeats itself
Just like it's always been -
I kept the pace, but lost the race.............
Forgotten once again.

    And so it goes. Love's sad old familiar song. But sometimes those who seem to be forgetting get their share further down the road, when their heart catches up with them. Heartbreak is always round the corner for some people though - maybe most people - but especially those capable of deep and true love. This oozes sadness Linda, and reads so smoothly and easily. Very gentle on the ear but sore on the heart. Terrific writing as always, and from the heart! xx jim Reply

    I hope that this is just your muse speaking, Linda...always sad when loved ones are taken for granted. I would vote with my feet! A well written - albeit sad -testament to familiarity.

Forgotten Poems

  1. Let It Be Forgotten

    Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten, Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold, Let it be forgotten forever and ever, Time is a kind friend, he will make us old. If anyone asks, say it was forgotten Long and long ago, As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall In a long-forgotten snow.

  2. He Remembers Forgotten Beauty

    When my arms wrap you round I press My heart upon the loveliness That has long faded from the world; The jewelled crowns that kings have hurled In shadowy pools, when armies fled; The love-tales wrought with silken thread By dreaming ladies upon cloth That has made fat the murderous moth; The roses that of old time were Woven by ladies in their hair, The dew-cold lilies ladies bore Through many a sacred corridor Where such grey clouds of incense rose That only God's eyes did not close: For that pale breast and lingering hand Come from a more dream-heavy land, A more dream-heavy hour than this; And when you sigh from kiss to kiss I hear white Beauty sighing, too, For hours when all must fade like dew. But flame on flame, and deep on deep, Throne over throne where in half sleep, Their swords upon their iron knees, Brood her high lonely mysteries.

  3. But Not Forgotten

    I think, no matter where you stray, That I shall go with you a way. Though you may wander sweeter lands, You will not soon forget my hands, Nor yet the way I held my head, Nor all the tremulous things I said. You still will see me, small and white And smiling, in the secret night, And feel my arms about you when The day comes fluttering back again. I think, no matter where you be, You'll hold me in your memory And keep my image, there without me, By telling later loves about me.

  4. The Forgotten Dialect Of The Heart

    How astonishing it is that language can almost mean, and frightening that it does not quite. Love, we say, God, we say, Rome and Michiko, we write, and the words get it all wrong. We say bread and it means according to which nation. French has no word for home, and we have no word for strict pleasure. A people in northern India is dying out because their ancient tongue has no words for endearment. I dream of lost vocabularies that might express some of what we no longer can. Maybe the Etruscan texts would finally explain why the couples on their tombs are smiling. And maybe not. When the thousands of mysterious Sumerian tablets were translated, they seemed to be business records. But what if they are poems or psalms? My joy is the same as twelve Ethiopian goats standing silent in the morning light. O Lord, thou art slabs of salt and ingots of copper, as grand as ripe barley lithe under the wind's labor. Her breasts are six white oxen loaded with bolts of long-fibered Egyptian cotton. My love is a hundred pitchers of honey. Shiploads of thuya are what my body wants to say to your body. Giraffes are this desire in the dark. Perhaps the spiral Minoan script is not laguage but a map. What we feel most has no name but amber, archers, cinnamon, horses, and birds. Anonymous submission.

  5. A Childhood Forgotten, A Childhood Lost

    [NOTE: THIS POEM IS NOT TO BE USED ANYWHERE WITHOUT MY CONCENT. PLEASE USE THE LINKS IN MY BIOGRAPHY OR MESSAGES ON THIS SITE TO CONTACT ME. THANKS.] I can't remember, Skipping rocks on the pond, My childhoods forgotten, My Childhoods lost, Going to the lake, Sitting on the beach, Playing with friends, or dancing in the streets, I can't remember, The crash in the fog, My childhood was forgotten, My childhood was lost, The doctor doing surgery, Me getting pills, I can't remember any of it, None of it's clear, I still can't remember, How it is gone, My childhood forgotten, My childhood's lost! Well I'm gonna end it right now, I gonna kill myself off, A childhood Forgotten, A childhood lost
