Dreamed of you last night

Wiping the tears of regaret and sorrow

And it seemed to me that I lived on memories

So in a way, I was made for the part

That regret is the shrivelling of the sourl

And guilt is for fools

And life is a series of lessons

That either you learn or you don't

And your image has finally been erased

from my mind

And the futility has struck me like

A hammer to a nail

That you are just a forgotten discard

Of what will never be

And my dreams have died

For a little while anyway...

And self-respect has come to replace self-pity

And I have taken back my heart

And dream of nothing new.

very somber...
this poem has a very mellow mood. though i think the start of the poem is alittle choppy so to say, i thought as i read further down it was very good. loved the line "And self-respect has come to replace self-pity

And I have taken back my heart

And dream of nothing new."
i've said it before in another poem, i can really relate to it, so you get the point out, which is what makes a nice poem (in my view :) good poem.

good emotion
I think you did an excellent job of dealing with some very difficult feelings that come at the end of a relationship.

time heals all...
good poem, time and only time can truly wash away the pain...this poem feels like the time came to move on, so the heartbreak was locked up somewhere to starve and wither, till it was no more. am I right?
