To A Friend To Be Forgotten

I'm not going to tell you that I'm breaking apart.
I'm not going to show you where you've broken my heart.

Why am I always being risked by other people?
Shot down in flames from a safe distance.

I'm not going to let you back to work from inside.
I'm not going to be there, when you realise why.

I'm not going to see you when I see you around.
I'm not going to hear your sounds.

Why is it me they want to deal with the pain?
Don't I deserve some space?

I'm not going to let you back to work from inside.
I'm not going to be there when you realise.

Thank you for commenting Nazia and Ghazala ?

This poem was like a confirmation and affirmation to myself of my intentions, but of course I never really have forgotten this friend, neither the friendship we had beforehand, nor the manner of ending. It isn't something I think about often, but it's not something I can forget either.

Top Tip: If you're going to try and forget someone don't write a powerful poem or a catchy song about them. (wait and see)

It's always difficult to delve into a poet's thought. I wish I could. Well expressed?

So this poem implies your friend you don't want to deal with.

I'd like to state, just for the record, that 'The Wonder Tree' and 'To A Friend To Be Forgotten' are not about the same friendship.

Also, whereas I did show 'The Wonder Tree' to the friend it was written about, I have never shown 'To A Friend To Be Forgotten' to the person it was about.
