How do i erase you
from my mind?
How do I delete you
from my memory?
How do I forget the love
we shared?
After the feelings I bared
You have rejected me
and scorned me
I am banished from your life
I have become invisible
and out of sight
The sting is as bad as the bite
You look right through me
as if I did not exist
You are blind to my presence
Obscured from your view
I am now insignificant
as I become your relinquishment

    So sad to be rejected–and worse to be made to feel insignificant. It makes me think of what I’ve read about “ghosting,” and a new term “mosting,” where the person lays on praise so thick, and then vanishes.

    Sadly, people can be cruel…it takes courage and commitment to truly love long-term. Hopefully, heartache gives us empathy for others’ pain.

    Such people are cowardly and do not deserve a second thought. You, on the other hand are an amazing poet and person! ❤️❤️

    So sad when this happens – and the sting is just as bad as the bite.

    This happens to much. Even if not together people should still be cordial.

    It’s so frustrating when we are shut out of another’s life

      Thank you .V.J. Why do people do that? It’s cruel for the one shunned.

        I don’t know why they do it. Three friends did this to me once – all on the same day. It was crushing.

        I’m so sorry. It’s like some kind of power trip when really they don’t have the balls to say why they are doing it. Very cowardly 😕

    such a great poem Christine in response to the prompt. i see your heart in this. i know how it is to be ignored when once adored, erased and confused about our own feelings. but your words show a truth that it is not about you, its the other’s insecurities, not your fault they can’t commit to a strong, loving human. this poem is a keeper. well done

      Dear Gina, thank you for your kind words. Your comments are always so thoughtful and I appreciate your wonderful feedback. Some people can be so unfeeling towards others. It makes me sad.

    I’m working on my debut poetry book and preparing a mailing list. Would you like me to add your e-mail address please? If so, can you share it with me?

    I don’t plan to do hard-core promotion, I will be e-mailing you privately not through any software. 

    I will just inform you when it’s available and when there is some huge fluctuation in price (sale etc.), as on WordPress reader, posts get lost in stampede.

    I won’t be mailing you more than 4 to 5 times a year, and that’s max. Promise!

    And if you want it to share it privately you can do that through contact form on my blog.

    Thank you 🙂
