A poem about the memories of how much pain I experienced when my first love dumped me last year.

Every waking second that passes, your memory vexes my cerebellum

 

I have attempted every technique available to eliminate your lovely face

 

You have long since exonerated us, yet like a cretin I continue to saunter

 

Why won't you evaporate and leave me to rejuvenate my inner peace?

 

With every breath I take, I taste the bitter yet sweet essence of you

 

Oh my dearly beloved why do I still possess this deep level of affection?

 

For you after all the hell that I have had to sustain just to keep us ablaze

 

The gift that you once gave me was one of a rare yet amazing nature

 

But it has faded and I have been left with the imprint of a harrowing scar

You have an eloquence to your writing that is lost on many writers lately. Bravo on your descriptions and I'm sorry for the loss of someone you loved.
