Day 22 POEM: Sometimes I Forget

Sometimes I Forget, January 27, 2005

 

If just for a moment

I could share with you how I feel

Wrap my arms around you

And lose myself in your scent

 

Yesterday I laughed with you

Sharing a funny moment,

We shared more than that

 

Today smiles seem so perfect

And nothing can going wrong

Or can it?

 

Did I forget

That perhaps

You don’t feel the same

Perhaps it’s just a dream

A crazy dream of mine

 

Up and down I seem to go

You take me higher

And then my mind jumps in

And I sink down

 

Because maybe I forgot

That perhaps

You don’t feel the same

Perhaps it’s just a dream

A crazy dream of mine

 

If for just a moment

You could share with me how you feel

Wrap your arms around me

I’ll get lost in your scent

 

Yesterday you were

On the same page as me

Reading along beside one another

 

Today we closed the book

And now I’m asking

What was the ending?

 

Because maybe I forgot

As you can see, if you've been following along, teenage heartbreak was a big theme in my poetry. I came across this one and I just liked it. I'd like to say the later time post meant I slept in this morning, sadly that is not the case. I was just busy with the kids. Now they are watching the Land Before Time so I had a chance to do some writing. Speaking of which, I just wanted to give everyone a head's up. I belong to a mom group online and a few of us have been talking about writing. I am starting a writer's circle type of thing with them but I will also be posting it on here for anyone else interested in some fun creative activities. So many times now I have stories on the go and get stuck so I don't write because I can't get past it. But then because, that's what I am currently working on, I don't write. And it's harder to get back into it when you aren't doing it regularly. These exercises are going to help that. It's just a prompt to keep writing regularly on something other than what your current project is. But that's the best part about writing, you never know where something is going to take you. A silly exercise could turn into a bestseller. Starting Monday, I will be posting a weekly writing exercise. If you are interested, do the exercise, if you want to share what you write, please do.
