What We Seek To Forget
5 December, 1998
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


The fire of you burns deeply inside me
As I seek to remember what I now try to forget
I have read your words again, my Love
And they touch me still

A tear once again forms the river into my smile
As I think of your love
The heat of your passions
Your desire

So hard to forget what once was so real
To try and believe it was nothing
Shatters my very core
I weep..

Precious your words remain so vivid
Your promises guiding my hungers
Making me give up all what was so real
How can I be the same

How can I even try to love another now
As I know it is you I want
My passions flow
My desires still lost in the lust of you

I have tried to forget what I now remember
I try to go on and pretend it didn't matter
But it did ...and it does
And somehow it always will

Another tear falls on the pillow of my life
I open my eyes to a new day
As I try to close out yesterdays passions
It no longer matters.... nothing does

I never fathomed of the ideas of the doors we opened
The pains I invited in so easily
Now nothing but tattered remains and left
Silent sentries to the darkness of the void heart

Yet I pray still for the memories
Yet I pray more for you
That you are stronger than I
And in that power.. can remember
...Yet forget

------- Author's Notes -------

Instead of holding on to the pain of the loss...
Hold on to memory of something wonderful that once was
