Wisdom from a Gas Station

Poetry By: elegantbleeding

The idea for this poem actually did come from a gas station. You see, there is a local gas station in our area that tries to put compelling sayings on it, such as "Good fortune comes to those who wait."

Well, around Valentine's day, they posted a sign that said "True love never fades." At the time, I thought it was corny, but I still wanted to use it in a poem eventually. It wasn't until late June when my first real boyfriend dumped me that I realized how true the words were. As the months passed, it inspired me to write these words. I hope they came out sincerely.

Wisdom from a gas station--
"True love never fades."
Cars pass on by, either unaware
Or without a care.
At first, I think it's so silly...
Do they expect me to take this seriously?
I laugh at the wind,
My breath offensive.

Wisdom from a gas station--
It can't be that great.
A few desensitized words
To leave prices blurred.
That's all... right?
If it was so insignificant,
Why am I thinking about it?

Wisdom from a gas station,
Please don't be true.
I don't want to remember
Those moments together.
Can you teach me to forget?
In my heart, it's untrue.
I should've taken you more seriously.

Wisdom from a gas station--
My friend, you are wise.
I can't forget the face
That I refuse to replace.
Will this ever stop?
I guess not... After all,
"True love never fades."
