Archive for the tag “forgotten”

as forgotten can be

living in the moment
ideally like the butterfly
there is no thought
only flight
impossible to comprehend
the past
whatever it was
whatever it may have been
it is gone
gone forever
free from the chains that once
held us in place
forgotten as forgotten can be

forgotten isle

I did not mean to forget
but the years have a way
of hiding that which should be visible
like storms concealing waves
so very close to shore

will you ever forgive me
after forgetting to keep you in mind
having skipped away
from one stone to the next
testing the limits of time

it’s not that I’ve been lost before
but this time must be real
as if exiled on a forgotten island
where neither moon nor sun
shall no longer call me friend
