This is to you, you know who you are, that through your actions you made it easier to say goodbye. Thank you.
Forgive You, Forget Me
Somewhere between our passion and conversation
We lost the connection from our past.
You responded to me less, I doubted you more,
The signs were there it couldn't last.
Desire's urging couldn't sustain us,
What I tried to convey wasn't getting through.
But the hardest to deal with was my aching heart,
Knowing in the end my love wasn't enough for you.
After two years of trying to hold it together
Our destinies worked twice as hard to tear us apart.
With my actions I seemed to quietly admit defeat,
Yet the screaming to salvage us came from my heart.
Others were stealing from me your time,
Your so-called friends robbing me of what should be mine.
When I lie in bed staring into empty space,
There are images that cloud my mind that aren't easily erased.
You accused me of being selfish,
Only concerned about what mattered to me.
Yet, you seemed to live only to satisfy yourself.
Why is it that fact you seemed not to see?
Some question marks in my head were warranted,
Others came from the secrets and the lies.
As time went on, I wished for your absence;
It was the days you appeared, disappointing me, that I dispised.
Now the embraces we share are cordial,
The emotions once arousing are now dull and dry.
Your complacency has affected my attitude.
So when the rest of my feelings for you die?
You're definitely not the one you seemed to be at first,
Those days when you were giving our love a try.
You've succeeded in pushing me away this time,
Making it easier to say goodbye.

|Yeah - EXCELLENT is a good word.
Right off the bat I could tell i would like this poem.
Poems that "flow" from the heart always capture my attention altho like many men i usually avoid "love" poem and the such...
Very well done.
(And been there and done that too!)

|This really made me appreciate what I have and how I should never take it or love for granted. You get out of love what you put in it. Great stuff.|

|Your poem is beautiful, it touches the heart
because couples do grow apart if the marriage or relationship is not nurtured, and for some reason men don't realize this.
keep up the good work.
