My feelings are buried

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful day! I am sharing with you all another poem post. This poem is about the comparison of memories or thoughts about someone you used to love. It's about trying to forget them, but everything you see reminds you of them. I hope you all enjoy reading this poem!


My feelings are buried

Everything that you do reminds me of taking the last sip of coffee, it’s bittersweet.

From the way, you talked felt like a beautiful rainbow shining at the end of a horrific storm.

To the way, we ended our conversations felt like a song playing that you never wanted to end.

The nerves I had felt like a constant pull of anxiety.

The butterflies I felt with you reminded me of the happiness I had as a child.


The memories of you are a reminder that I once used to love you like a best friend.

The communication that we no longer have is a distant reminder that I never wanted to be yours.

The so-called relevant pictures that you post are an image placed in my mind of the fantasy I used to want with you.

The words I said out loud are a constant echo that I lied to both myself and you.

The long and confusing nights that kept me up are a thought of what we could have been.


Your resentful attitude makes me afraid of what could have happened if I were persistent.

Your structured posture that brings chills down my spine shows me that I made a mistake to want to be with you.

Your smooth way of talking brings me both cringe and eerie feelings about what I once thought of you.

Your passive comments were a symbol that you were never going to change.

Your name is a word I never want to hear again.


Every memory that pops up in my mind, good or bad is a reflection of how I lost myself in you.

Every past story we shared was a sign that I once wanted to be more than friends with you.

When I look at the ocean, it is a constant reminder of you and all you did to me.

From the tone of your voice to your hypocritical comments

Is clearly a fact that I was never supposed to learn this much from you.


You came into my life like leaves falling in autumn

And you left once things were turning colder.

You disappeared from my reality like someone binge-watching tv shows.

You were always around me which threw me off when you suddenly weren’t.

You distracted my mind just about every day like gossip stories.


You weren’t supposed to do this to me,

But you can’t help who you fall in love with.

Maybe I should have read the signs like when I drive on the highway.

Maybe I should have listened to others' advice instead of listening to you.

You were a crazy, addicting song that I couldn’t get enough of, but like any song, you begin to get sick of it and want something else.


At one point, you were all I cared about,

But times have changed and now all I care about is myself.

I was a fragile water drop falling from the big and bold leaves of a tree.

You were like the inconsistent weather we have on the cape.

One day I liked you, the next day I hated you.


I want to forget all about you like a storm that passes by.

I want to be happy like the shining sun that comes out after that storm.

I want to learn from myself like someone who reads a book for the first time.

I won’t have your past self haunt me like the scary stories I hear at night.

I won’t have to worry about falling for you again because I already fell for myself.


I don’t worry about how you will market yourself to other people.

I stopped caring about your life from the moment you looked uninterested.

I don’t care about you.

I don’t care what you are doing.

I’m honestly more interested in what retired people are doing with their lives.


You were like a plague.

You spread quickly and ruined people all during the process of trying to conquer your goal.

You changed rapidly when you trusted the first person who would listen and tolerate you.

And you left without any warning in hopes of gaining attention,

But all you gained were self-esteem issues.


Someone who I used to look at like the ocean.

Where it was calming and carefree.

I now look at the ocean like it’s my worst enemy all thanks to you.

I’m sure you once loved the ocean like you loved yourself,

But the greed you have is hard to break away from.


You tried to be Poseidon,

While I’m nowhere near your greedy, moody, and tempered true self.

You tried to get away with everything in your life,

But that only gets you so far, right?

Try telling that to your next lover.


You tried to persuade my mind like a marketing manager trying to buy a product.

You did everything in your power to make sure I wouldn’t forget you,

But when I did forget you, I made sure to never think like you.

If only I knew how much I would compare you to,

I would’ve stopped myself sooner from falling in love with you.


So, I’ll forget about you like past childhood memories.

I won’t reminisce about the feelings I had developed for you.

I’ll have a different mindset because of you

And I’ll truly know what it’s like to put myself first.

You were once the main character of my story, but know you are the foil.
