I Remember That You Forgot

I remember,
You said: “I will be there”

I memorise,
You said: “I won’t change”

I recollect,
You whispered: “Let them doubt, but we will be together”

I heard,
You told me: “I will take up the responsibility, I will be in charge”

I smiled,
You held my hand while crossing the road.

I recapitulate,
You planned beautiful times for me without feeling burdened.

I cried,
You said: “I cannot see you cry”

I remembered you
I remembered your words

I remembered the movement of your lips while you said all that
Life changed alot, yet

I remembered that you forgot
I don’t really remember” you said and that’s all I got!

    On a rough estimate, six out of ten would have either endured or caused such experiences, but the attraction of love never dies as it is rightly said: “Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing.” Despite such painful experiences of rejection and separation, hearts get attracted in an eternal saga of romantic relationship as designed by Cupid, making this world go round and round on the wheels of love. Thanks for having narrated the pangs of ‘forgotten love’ with vivid poetic imagery!

    Beautifully expressed ! Would be an eye-opener for many. The last words leave the reader speechless and brings so much nostalgia. You have a unique way of writing and you are incredible at that 🙂

      Hi Prateek,
      Welcome to my space and thanks for your meaningful comment!
      I am amazed to see that you took the pulse of the poem:)
      While I was ending the poem, even I felt that the ending was painful and the last two lines said it all. Glad you could see that emotion.
      Great to meet you! 🙂

      Hey Paul,
      I’m doing fine amd yourself?
      It’s such a great emotion that I have made friends here who care. I loved to see your message Paul.
      I haven’t written since long so feeling a little suffocated. Need to get rod of thoughts through a poem, I guess.

            Your welcome Shruti. I just had a feeling is all. Hadn’t seen much from you lately. Suspected you might be a little down, or perhaps not feeling well. But I’m glad your more up now, and that makes me happy. Darn those peaks and valley’s huh? :O)
