The Break-Up

He says he will forget me in an instant, oh, that’ll be so easy

And tells me he used to talk about me to his friends all the time

But not anymore; he doesn’t like me that much these days 

Then, just before letting go of my hand, he asks that I never forget him.

    Easy, It definitely shall be,
    To forget you, I promise thee,

    In an instant, I could be no more,
    For when I cease to exist, I shall cease to remember thou.

    Yet, I hold your hands close,
    Not wanting to let you go,

    It wasn’t a choice I made,
    Still and cold, in a suit plaid.

    I read somewhere “some saplings just won’t grow yonder. You can’t force them to sprout, its just that the soil’s just not right for them.” I have personally applied this analogy during all my break-off’s. try it if it helps.

    Whats to remember..
    whats to forget

    bitter sweet memories
    one ought not to regret

    The brave will choose to cherish
    while ‘amnesia’ walks to perish

    @Brad: 🙂 I saw it. I was just woondering if you were making a point of it by mentioning it again, here.

    @Sanjay: Nice. I’m not overly fond of rhymes but I like the last line.

    Breaking up seems to be one of the most harshest experiences of life but do we ever learn? I guess thats what makes us human! Nice blog here IdeaSmith!

    Nopes. No point being made. Just a statement.

    @ Brad: :-). Good. And a well-expressed reply (your first comment, I mean)

    @ Perspective: Would ‘sry’ be sorry? Don’t be…it wasn’t a break-up in that sense! ‘He’ is still as much a part of my life as he was before.

    ‘He is still as much a part of my life as he was before’ – It is very annoying when somebody says exactly the same thing as I would’ve and probably also mean exactly what I would have meant. This is such a diplomatic statement, coz’ if ‘he’ didn’t really mean anything to you, s/he continues to mean nothing, thereby being a part of your life just as ‘he’ was before! Hmmm. We are such evil people and we love it, don’t we!

    @ Brad: Alter-egos aren’t supposed to blow each other’s cover off in front of other people!!!! :p. Besides, who says ‘he’ didn’t mean anything at all? After all, I didn’t reply to anything that ‘he’ said or didn’t say.
