I Wish I Could Forget You (I Know I Never Will)

by IdTakeABulletForYou   Oct 19, 2006

We never had a chance in this,
it seems our love is gone.
Who knew that we would never last;
we've been doomed all along.

I once had cherished our love,
And now I miss it so...
I didn't think we'd end this way,
just wish you didn't go.

In time I know I'll feel the pain
of being all alone;
and in the chair I know I'll sit
-- I'll wait for you to phone.

I know that it will never ring
-- aware it is no use.
I know that even knowing that,
I still will wait for you.

I know I cannot bring you back;
I never will succeed.
There is no word in all the world
that would make you love me.

And I'll look in the mirror
knowing that I am to blame.
I never will forgive myself;
life will not be the same.

Your face is still etched in my head;
I'm scared to let it go
-- Cause if I let you slip away
I will be on my own.

(I don't know how to live
without your tenderness and care.
And even if I wish for you,
I know you won't appear.)

It seems like it's a nightmare,
even though it's clearly real;
and even though our love is dead
I cannot stop the way I feel.

I wish that you could hear me
-- hear me crying late at night;
I wish that you would read this,
wish you'd see the things I write.

I know I'm just a memory,
a pigment in your head.
To you we are not anything
-- all passion has been dead.

No matter how I wish it false,
I know that it is true;
It's dead; I must accept the fact:
I Never Will Have You.

And somehow deep within my heart,
I'll hold onto you still.
I wish I could forget you,
-- but I know I never will.

Please rate and comment accordingly.

    :O Little S poem.. how have i not seen this..
    you even signed off on it with your real name...

    This is so full of love lost and desire for it to spark up again and heartbreak.. so much pain.. I loved the rhyming in this and the layout.. but I can also see just how much you have progessed as a poet and as a person...

    Also side note- i absolutely love this piece.. :)

    Oh, I LOVE this!
    I found it to be a mixture of sweet and sad.
    Imagery you painted was beautiful, it creates clear vivid pictures for the reader, flow was flawless throughout the entire poem and the emotion can clearly be felt behind the words.
    The only thing I wasn't to sure on was the use of so many I's, but apart from that I adore this.
    My favourite part was the ending, I thought it to be very sad, yet elegantly written, intense and hardhitting.
