I wish I could forget...
Forget all the tears and pain,
Forget all the hurt and shame,
Forget all the things of my past,
Because like most, they didn't last.
Forget the memories of your face.
It's wrapped around my heart like intricate lace.
Forget all the times you made me mad,
But I would have to forget all the fun we had.
I want to forget the joy you made me feel,
The joy that, to me, felt so real.
I want to forget the grip you had on my heart,
A grip so tight that it broke us apart.
I want to forget the tears that I still cry,
Because I see you in their eyes.

I want to forget everything about you.
I don't want to have a clue.
I want to forget everything in my past,
Because if I don't,
I know my future will pass.

I totally understand this poem!! I have a half brother who has a father who I really want to forget. He made me and my siblings hurt like crazy. I really want to forget the man who hurt us, but I just can't. My brother has some looks that his father has. He is the reason why my mother lost most custody of us. He is the reason why me and my siblings are hurting.

Isabelle K, I know how you feel. My biological dad gave up his rights when I was a baby. I'm now 11, almost 12. My biological dad had other things he wanted to do in life and being a dad wasn't one of them. He hurt my family. He made my sister depressed, but I didn't know until I was 10. And the fact that they hid it from me for 9 Years! I know they were trying to protect me, but when they told me, it made me depressed. I have been battling depression and suicide for 3 years now...
