Teach Me Your Ways

Please give me a lesson
On how I can possibly
Block someone from my heart
Banish someone from my mind
Erase someone from my past
Ignore someone I used to know so well…
You make it look so easy
As you move on with your life
Leaving me behind
With nothing by broken promises
And a heart still full of love for you


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – lesson


I have tried to stop

But I still need you

I have tried to forget

But I still feel you

I have tried to pause

But my heart still beats for you

I have tried to rest

But my mind is always thinking of you

I have tried to ignore

But the love will not die

Please have mercy on me

I have really tried…
