    WANTED memories

    You can't bend a bullet around me,
    To get the memories to die.
    Its impossible, like shooting wings off a fly.
    You CAN bend the truth,
    Without telling a lie...
    ...But why?
    You can't avoid what's between you, and I.

    You think that just because you know
    Which emotions of mine that you can taunt...
    ...That you know what I want?
    You just know what to flaunt.
    Memories are like phantoms,
    Its not just me they haunt.

    And they're not gonna quit.
    If you know what to flaunt...
    ...then you know what to omit.
    But it won't make you forget.
    Who're you trying to convince, that the candle aint lit?
    Flickering candles really don't mean sh!t.

    Unless they can set fire to the way that I feel.
    Candles lit around a tub full of a milky congealed
    substance that I could just lay in, and heal.
    But we all know that sh!t isn't real.

    These flames derive from what's already been felt.
    Miracle baths can't heal the scar from loves welt
    We're all just notches on loves belt.
    These flames can only make love burn, or hate melt.

    I couldn't stay with him, he couldn't stay with her.
    I would've been a basket case, he'd be her enabler
    The painful memories, are just like clicks from a stapler
    Just clicking... without the two pieces of paper
    that needed a reason to stay together...

    These memories are what can turn love, into hate.
    Or hate into love, (They make it seem so great).
    It all depends on which ones you let increase your heart rate.
    Do you embrace these thoughts?
    Or do you assassinate?






    Note: Once I encorporated one teeny tiny word play from the movie "Wanted"... I knew I was going to have to keep it up and just let the whole poem be scattered with little refferences from the movie. The emotions and thoughts that originally motivated me to write this, had nothing to do with the movie. But, I thought the outcome wes pretty creative.

    Re: WANTED memories

    I love how you talked about the movie Wanted as your introduction to your poem. The idea of not being able to erase or forget one's memories is probably due to emotional baggage. I think it's in our human nature to hold things that seem dear to us even when it caused us pain. But that's just my guess.

    Yeeeahh.. I just tweaked this a little (again). I don't know what it means when I re-read something I wrote, and can't help but to find something that could still use editing.
    Anyway, thank you for your input. And yes, I agree that holding dearly on to pain has to be a human frailty.

    Re: WANTED memories

    i never saw the movie but this poem was great it really shows
    the way hate drives us all in a good way or bad i will have to
    watch the movie though so i can get more from this but from
    what i have read its a really awesome poem about love and
    what you control in it or not.

    your poem once again makes for a great read and sorry its been
    a while but i have been busy with collage stuff lol trying to get some
    education in this ol brain of mine.
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
    I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
    Isolate and save you from yourself

    that one was a personal fav because i've done it before.

    and peach, you asked all the right questions.
    the love you withhold is the pain you carry.

    Re: WANTED memories

    I love the way you conveyed the movie in this poem... I have a lot of thought towards this poem, but really can't keep them in one state of mind... Maybe I will have to pM you to figure out where you was going with this writing... I guess you can say I can't keep up with your thought or maybe my thought isn't thinking enough... Either way I keep reading this poem & come up with different outcomes... But the most that stands out is how memories are actually tested... I know you didn't write it down like that, but that is where my thought led me to thinking... You know I love this poem cause it is, yet another creative writing & plus you portrayed it well with the movie...

    The heart can't lie... Truth is... I love you!!!

    Re: WANTED memories

    Yeah... I don't doubt that this would be confusing. Esspecially seeing as how the feelings that inspired the poem, and the plot of the movie WANTED don't really have much to do with eachother.

    There are portions of this that were simply created just to tie the two together... those parts don't even make sense to me.

    Just a mish mosh really. Quite sloppy. Can't really say I was going anywhere with it... Just going.

    Re: WANTED memories

    Either way I love this poem & give my thanks to whatever inspired you to write this creative piece... It really isn't that sloppy if you take the time & let the poem flow & ask yourself "how the writer felt while writing this"..? And everyone knows how memories can play with a person's emotions...

    The heart can't lie... Truth is... I love you!!!
