Assignment: Poem or Sestina.
Tuesday. 3.31.09 12:17 pm
I chose to write a sestina.
I can feel msyelf fading from your memory.
You make fewer visits to my grave.
My soul is suddenly overwhelmed with lonliness
as I watch you down by the river.
I remember times when we used to play in the great tree.
Perhaps I'm the one who needs to forget.
But I cannot forget.
You will always be in my memory.
When you leave, I will climb the great tree.
Sitting up high, I'll watch you avoid my grave.
You'll do anything to stay away, even cross the river.
I can't take this lonliness.
Do you even feel lonliness?
Is it possible for you to forget?
Do you simply let your throughts float away down the river?
I know you have a memory.
I see you glance out of the corner of your eye at my grave.
I can see it all the way up here in the great tree.
I wonder if you can sense me up here in this tree.
I think you feel my lonliness.
It overwhelms you, too, as you stare back at my grave.
You no longer attempt to forget.
I'm flooding your memory.
I flow through your mind as fast as the current of the river.
I flood, I flow, I am a mirror of the river.
Faster and faster, water splashes against the great tree.
You tremble violently, trying to shake my memory.
You finally come to terms and feel my lonliness.
Don't try to forget,
It's useless. You're standing in front of my grave.
I jump down to greet you at my grave.
Your tear drops make deep splashes in to the now calm river.
I've tried to forget. You've tried to forget.
It's emotionally impossible to stay away from the great tree.
Two souls experience the same lonliness,
But only I can see you. I can only be a memory.
I walk from my grave under the great tree,
I stand in the river and watch you in your lonliness
As your attempt to forget only leaves you drowning in memory.
