To Be Completely Forgotten (Oblivion)

by Trevor Hughes   Jun 22, 2016


After the last petals fall from the flower of love,
rose thorns and briar's condense me like clouds to a dove.
Young life living in blissful ignorance,
but when I stop and appreciate, I'm ensnared by joy's true essence.
Crippled from saudade memories,
My soul cracked like porcelain; forced to fake.
The pain I try to outrun leads me to more levels of Aggro's testimony...
Outside I look jubilant but oblivion reeks from the inside, things I reaped from what I sow.
I've done my devil's deeds and wonder, "Why unto me?"
You land all of these bruises- patronizing and frivolously blown.
Blown to living glass from Love's past ash, you see?
I just don't want to be forgotten. Don't let me slip into sanity.
"Insane," some say, but I say "Awake and freed from oblivion; not forgotten but set free."

    Trevor, another awesome one dude. Again, like your first poem on here, there's a good flow. This one is more complicated and to me, has more emotion. I can tell it came from the heart - there's a force behind it that can't have been brought about by fluke or just for the hell of writing. It doesn't come across as a rap like the other did, but it can definitely become one. If you have a sound track, I'd love to hear it.

    Thanks for sharing this with us all my friend :)

    Thankyou all by Agro's testimony I seen it like _-agro is an intense broken hearted longing lost feeling of like and unquenchable un conscious self hatred from betrayal and abandonment no matter how happy I came and try to do my best I and always falling back with the the testimony of agro is what I have to do and will do to fight for and achieve what I want in my life no matter how hard I will not let this works corrupt me. My most prizes possession is my huge heart. I'm just a love bug and so while I travel along now the testimoney that so the plan and tough things I have to go to to reach my full potential no matter how hard in the end I'll shed my porcelain doing and be free again

    Trev - I like this. Its very eye opening and real as to how we all feel at some stage in our life.

    My soul cracked like porcelain; forced to fake.

    ^^^
    We all fake some part of our lives in one way or another, whether is our happiness, or faking friends or how good our lives are....
    With the agro's testimony i have no clue what your aiming for - but i feel as though a piece of you may be angry at the pain and your trying to cover it up.. I may be wrong :P

    All in all - very great write!
