I remember you as a part of a dream
Long deep kisses in the dead of night
Soft fingers moving across my soul
Your face washed away
in the early morning light

You may have been hurt a thousand times,
Or destroyed with WORDS as hot as FIRE,
You may be broken and shattered,
You may not know what else to do,
So you resort to becoming bitter with words,
Aiming at attacking the ones that got away with you
Did they break you or ****** YOU?
Did it throw you into pieces?
And now you want to burn them in anyway?
Why not sit, ponder and SEARCH,
Sit again and see,
As long as you are bitter and fighting back,
There will be no peace,
For there is more energy and stress exerted in fighting than forgiving.
Forgive and let go.
It will soothe you,
It will him too.
Forgive,
Close your eyes,
Take a deep breath
And let it go
For it burdens your heart
And soon will make you collapse.
Let us all embrace ourselves as one even with our poetry, you don't have to leave this site for been hurt, someone out there needs your kind poems to sirvive. Forgive and MOVE ON. We are all pencils in the EYES of God.

There's this dude
and one day
he walks in his house
and
everyone's all
shook up
and
crying
He sees his
best friend and
walks up to him
and asks
what's wrong
but the friend just
keeps crying
and
doesn't answer
and this dude
figures he's too
busted up
to talk about it
so
he sits down
and waits
for someone
to tell him
what's
going
on

After awhile
his grandmother
comes up
and
taps him
on the shoulder

He looks
and says
"What are you doing here, grandmother?  You're dead"

"So are you"
she tells him
From long ago

Take my hand
and
I can show you
   the
      total
         freedom
            of
               passion

Hold me close
and
I can reveal
to you
   the
      deepest
         secrets
            of the
               night

And if we lie
   very still
we will almost hear
   Death
      laughing

I remember
sitting in your apartment
on a warm summer night
with the windows open
to a soft breeze
We were all drinking beer
and listening to music
and laughing about things I no longer recall
I thought  
this is a night I will remember forever
and when I'm old
I will think about it
and it will make me smile

I am old now
and smiling

In my heart
I hear your voice
I see your face
I know
my friend
you will always be

Rest easy
and remember me
when we meet again

All I remember is
your anger

insults
and pain
and bitter words
instead of
hugs
and kisses
and
soft
tender
touches

I wish I could remember
the good times

laughs
we shared
and
dreams
of the future

Were there any?
Do you remember?
