About the Poem

I wrote this poem shortly after my most soul draining breakup. I decided to forgive myself for falling in love with a dreamer. And I promised myself that I would learn to never regret the choices I've made in my life.

Life is a game of chance, and sometimes we have to go through hell to find the sunset. Though I am somewhat of a dreamer myself, I allow my feet to graze the soil of reality. My spirit remains wild, but the road is not and never can be my home...

Longing To Forget

Your music moved me
Did things to my soul to make me love you
My facade would crumble
under your uncanny touch

Slow Like Molasses
Bittersweet in December
I never meant to draw you in...

Yet I don't think I can forget
What my heart longs to forget...

Cold walks in the rain
The summertime moon
And coffee at noon - it moved me

My dirty laundry in your hands
Whose eyes was I seeing you through?
Sweet angel you could have been perfect
But I didn't have the strength to hold you down.

And I don't think I'll ever forget
What this soul yearns to forget...
Cold walks in the rain
The summertime moon
And coffee at noon.

You moved me.
