    I had exactly the same thing happen to me years ago. I think the line; 'better as a memory' describes the feeling well.

    I can totally relate to what you've written Keith.... It took me a long time to over come the ache in my heart.. but you'll get through it in the end...It will all be memories ... Only the good ones you'll remember 5/5

    Awsome poem!

    I know exactly how it feels.. Even after several years has passed I still look back sometimes and wonder what happened...

    Some how
    this line

    I'm better as a memory than as your friend

    rings my bad.
    such an amazing line that i promise will stick to my head for a while..
    u no bet got a gd imagenation.
    this poem was simpler than the one b4,...but that line just added a huge impact in a beautiful way.

    you know regarding the concept..time changes ppl..and ppl change with not sure which one and i got a poem about this.
    what matters is what WE remain..and what we never forget.


  • Excellent message. everything you had felt great, so how could it be a source of pain? forgeting isnt easy but you manage but theres still that one thought that always leaves you wondering why she severed her ties to you. great writing. 5/5

    You have a great talent. I love how you reminisce even though it may be hurtful for you because those times surely are the make and break of us.
    You beat and rhyme keep the piece going smooth throughout and it's always refreshing to see.
    I feel that time changes us all some for the better, some for the worse.
    Take care, Em
