I may remember, but I won't give in
to every pain of you, your hurt, your lies;
I've loved you once, but never shall again,
if I can just remember to forget your eyes.

I've put it all behind, I won't be bound,
by empty promises, that's just your style.
I'll walk away, and never look around,
if I can just remember to forget your smile.

I'll never wonder how your world is now,
if you have learned love's more than just a game,
I'll put it all behind; I know not how;
if I can just remember to forget your name.

I'll never let you know I can't forget,
if I convince myself, one day, we never met.

Think this hits home for me. Yes, there's grim satisfaction in not letting them know you still care. I am like that, for me it's their punishment to not know... or maybe it is also mine, but I don't mind. I even wish on birthday cakes to be able to forget the feeling, only to realize I'd already been harboring it for years already. But somehow, the last birthday candle works!!! So keep on hoping.

I love your poem pal!!!
