Forgetting you

Forgetting you

Your bittersweet kisses

Make me forget

The worse is gone

When I am with you, I'm at my highest

When you’re gone I feel my lowest

Loving you will kill me yet,

I can’t stop

I know having you stay is a hidden sin

But I think of you every day

Your smile entices me

Your eyes invite me

Your laugh excites me

Your cries break me

Hurting you was not planned, but loving you was

I wish I could take it back

Feel your touch

But you are my past

And someone else’s future

You are not mine

And I need to forget you

Every Earthling is your relative but only the ones you accept are your blood relatives."

Literally just be yourself. You are amazing and all anybody wants is for you to be yourself.

I was scrolling through the pages and pages of endless poems by named and unnamed people, growing tired of how many poems I had read, but none hit me quite like this one has. Very special poem we have here.

I've never been in love before but from your emotion, in this poem, I think I can feel how you were feeling. This is a very simple and elegant poem that made me sad at the beginning and hopeful at the end. Good Job!

Toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well-Juice wrld

I find appeal to this, the idea of expressing heartbreak entices me so but the idea of admitting fault and flaw entices me even more, far more than simply saying one had there heart broken, but you actually admitted your fault of the matter and the remorse to come. Good show I say.

I feel this with a passion, someone you cannot have, yet you yearn and cry for them, and knowing it was a sin yet you still committed it, for the sake of the feelings you had for that person till it was time to rid them.

This is really good! The emotions journey the narrator went on is powerful and sweet. I has a really good message about letting go too.

"Be you, because everyone else is already taken." This quote makes me realize that I'm good enough for anything or anyone. A lot of people talk about how we need to learn how to be ourselves, but this quote has a deeper meaning. At least to me, it means more than being comfortable with who you are.

This hit hard...I'm not going to lie, I can only imagine what happened and how you feel, but I can relate to some extent...I, myself, just went through a break up...last Wednesday...and I completely understand how you feel...I want him back but I can't have him...I miss the way he made me smile, the way he made me laugh, the way he made me feel, like no one else in the world...and I would do anything to have that life back, and not still be here sitting in the friend zone waiting on something that may never come back...he wasn't over his ex, but she's my best friend and now that they're together again, I can't help but sit back and be happy...I just want them to be happy, no matter what it takes... i guess
