I'll Never Forget You

Poem By Joseph Narusiewicz

Opaque heart lit with tenderness
She shines like a child’s smile
Those old songs bring a tear
I really hope your life is happy
When the bitterness goes we can see
We had some real love one for another
Didn’t we?

Oh! How I pretended and rationalized
How I tried too make it all contained
Processed and intellectual
Now I know it was love
Pure and simple love and passion
Defining things can minimize

Nothing has ever replaced the fire of your kiss
They say we only get one love of our life
Your eyes so filled with moonlight
So passionate
Our bed was on fire
Now I am old with memories
You are still there
You always loved purple
We had a purple lilac bush, remember?

Remember when we got our first antique lamp?
Candles in the dining room
Serving thanksgiving for my mother
So proud that our home was nice
You never did meet my father
I know you would have loved him

In some ways I hope I go first
I am happy you’re out there in this madhouse
If I ‘d quit drinking maybe we would be together
I regret that but alcohol is now long gone
I hope you always have a place in your heart for me
You did have a temper and could be tuff as nails
I know living with me could be hard sometimes
I think deep beneath all the pain we are friends

You’re married again and I wish you the best
Resolution can take a lifetime
Silent regret can be haunting
I think it’s easier to bring it out in the open
It's strange but I have a feeling we are still in touch

Love is a biography
Ours has ended but hasn't
Maybe past all the smoke and fire we are friends
I’ll never forget you, I already tried that

Love is a biography... nicely done poem. I can related to this.
Cathartic look at lost love, written with obvious regrets and memories of what could have been. Meaningful poem, Joseph. Thanks.
'Love is a biography Ours has ended but hasn't Maybe past all the smoke and fire we are friends I’ll never forget you, I already tried that' so much to love in this poem, from the opening lines 'Opaque heart lit with tenderness/ She shines like a child’s smile', such a wonderful poem in so many ways, no wonder it was chosen as a poem of the day 10+
Lots of bittersweet emotion in this, your feelings are still their, surfacing in this exquisitely charged work. Favorite lines Resolution can take a lifetime Silent regret can be haunting A great piece with wonderful flow of language. A masterpiece

This Land Is Your Land

Baby soon the summer will come
Were going to race down to the sea
Let love drown us in a kiss that never quits
No beggar hands

I Want To Kiss You

Your benign apathy is too heavy
You pretend you have all you need
Come down a notch babes
Come down and I will hold you

Go Slowly

Pearl trees like golden elephants
I sigh with gallant respite
Ornate spirit in the elven wind
Circles of pleasure

Bird Of Flight

Beauty of the world like a ray of sun
Like a glance of the stars
We own nothing
We see the reds and yellow

Lady Of The Winds

These mad wheels turn like rainbows
I am older than the rain
Older than the grand sun
Young like Billie Holiday crying
