Writing To Forget

Writing To Forget

The beautiful woman
sat at the empty bar
lost in deep thought. 
Why was she there 
trying to remember
or drinking to forget

I recognize her sadness
It plagues my dark eyes
causing deepest thoughts
as I quietly pen my words.
Am I trying to remember
or am I writing to forget

  1. What insight. I never gave a thought to this before. You have opened my eyes and given me the ability to become a better writer. I have now become a people studier. I think my trust issues hinder some growth in my later life. This is a beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing.
