Indifferent love

    • Hello fellow poets. I am originally from a very small very remote town in the woods of northern Maine.The town had a population of 560 souls.I was brought up( in what some would consider to be) abject poverty.If I was I never knew it. Simply due to the fact that everyone around me was in the same "boat".I have been writing from my teens. I enjoy the woods to this day. I hunt fish and hike whenever possible.And through the years I've learned that there is a God and that I'm not it. "SLIM"

    Indifferent love

    Will you hold me down forever?
    Shall I never be released?
    Will you linger in my soul
    Until it lies deceased?

    Decades past since my covet.
    For a one not willing be.
    But still you keep me clinging
    to a hapless memory.

    You rape me of my happiness.
    Awaken me in dream.
    Pursue me with remembrance
    Of a love thought bright agleam.

    I beg of you to let me go.
    Release me of your grasp!
    Or will you be relentless
    until my dying gasp.

    Forsake me Love if you must
    But do it mercifully
    Ease this lifelong pain I've felt
    And erase her memories.

    Thank you! I truely appreciate you taking time out to respond!Have a joyous holiday season! P.S. I wrote a "holiday" pome,and you were in part responsible.I read where you made the comment that these were kind of hard to compose.So I though I'd give it a try. I hope you like it. "Slim"
