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

Love is powerful but don't let it control you.

This was powerful. Loving someone then turning away from that love in the end really does hurt, great poem!

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

Dope stuff. Big love from the UK

What I find so relatable about this beautiful poem is knowing that you shouldn’t love someone but end up loving them anyway. And also balancing wanting to hurt and cherish them.

If this was a story
I would say to wait for the ending
But this is a poem
And poems don't have endings

Hey if you ever need someone to talk to im here because believe me I know how much love can push like, people don't seem to understand that love can kill or save and we all gamble in it we that advantage in it because we don't understand.

what I like about the poem is that its about the love he has for his sweetheart. Talking about "your eyes invite me, your laugth excites me."But, loving someone so much that he hast to be away from her.
