I Try to Forget

I go traipsing through my little day
Relishing things that come my way
Filling hours and minutes of time
With things exquisite and sublime
I find enchantment in all I see
The wonder of nature that touches me
And I try to forget….

The minutes all go dancing by
I turn my face up to the sky
I invite the sun to ravish me
On Mediterranean bed of scenery
And then I weave a tapestry
With silken word threads of poetry
And I try to forget….

I dance as though I am on fire
To the rhythmic tune of my desire
I put my heart in what I teach
And my soul in what I preach
I welcome twilight; then I pray
And I thank God for my day
I lay sweetly in my bed
Quiet down what's in my head
And I try…..
I really do try to forget…

That you are no longer a part of me.

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Wonderful rhyme my sweet enchantress that you have woven into this beautiful but sad tapestry. Your final sentence chages the colour of the work so abruptly and completely that it took me totally unawares.Congratulations on your win. It is a fantastic write. love Shane xxx

    That ending was heartbreaking. You built it up and built it up and then I was like "Ahhh". When someone climbs into our lives and then gets ripped away so suddenly we distract ourselves in anyway we can. You've expressed yourself really well here!

    And I would give you an A+ if this was an assignment that read, "What is your understanding of this poem?" You worded yourself so well, my dear. Yes...loss is so difficult. I hate it! I really do! Thanks for the visit.

    Beautiful Eileen, the poem, not you lol, though you is too, of course. You certainly painted some great visions here in this. Favourite lines 'And then I weave a tapestry With silken word threads of poetry', That is so you. Take care, Richard
