In Remembrance

by Spontaneity   Mar 12, 2016

I remember you, the way you
were caring to a tortured soul,
like me. I remember how you
made me feel like I had a friend
in this misery that I wallow in.

The wound that you left has not
healed quite yet. Whenever I am
aware that you are near, I have a
tendency to remember everything
that we shared -

the stories,
the memories,
the dreams...

all swallowed in lies...

But the joke is on you...

Do you remember who I am?
You remember my ugly face?
Insanity has been running in
my veins for years now...
eating what is left of my soul.

If you would just hear what
you see, and see what you hear,
maybe someday you would understand.

    It makes me sad when the people who gave us hope end up letting us down just as equally. I could understand having mixed feelings about this person...especially when they seemed the only person there in a time when you had noone- but, I hope you don't take this the wrong way when I say that, I AM glad that you DID have this person at the time to help you through whatever you had to go through...maybe they served their purpose in that way...

    I wish the best for you

    This poem has grit. It's speaks of experience off the back of painful lessons. This pain is being used, like harnessed energy and redirected as kind of protection from the past. The healing comes undone whenever they are around. The result is: regurgitated memories, and the compulsion to remind them how much damage has been caused. Why though? Perhaps to induce guilt and/or an apology? Would that help -possibly? What's needed? Compassion, empathy, honesty, anything!

    So much emotion here. Powerful indeed.

    Take care,
