About the Poem

"Memories" describes a love that once was had in the physical life, but is now only remembered in a mental capacity.


I felt it would be better not to remember you,
to never entertain the thought of your kiss upon my soul,
but I long to feel the fire of your hot, hungering lips,
lovingly pressed on my lips,

the tender whispers you uttered softly in the night,
once filled a part of my life

I was a prisoner harnessed by your smile,
led by your eyes,
moved by your touch,
and totally captivated by your being,
but still,
we couldn't make it through the storm,

So now that things have changed,
there will always be a special place
you will hold deep in my heart,
and I will cherish in my memories,
the smile in your eyes,
the softness of your lips,
the sensuality in your walk

I guess there will never by any describing,
indescribably you.

I really liked this poem. I was-and still am-in complete love with someone that, beyond his control, had to leave me. The timing of our love was just, too late. Our lives were in two different directions and we had to say goodbye. I still think of him everyday and wish I could feel his arms around me once again. And I know he feels the same. But, we have since parted ways and pray we see each other again one day.
Hey I loved this poem it got me through the hardest part of my life when my bf of 7months broke up with me. It was a long bistance relationship so it was ok but he hurt me and even though we are remaining friends the hurt he caused me will never disapper. But he holds a special place in my heart and that will never go away. He gave em the best months of my life and for thati will always be grateful. Keep writing you have a talent that no one can take away and it touches peoples souls all over the world.
