Disclaimer: I own the poem and that's it.
Author's Note: First person point of view (or POV for those who don't know), which is Carrie's. I just thought Unforgettable could use a poem. ^_^
Echo forward, a fearsome future.
No memories, no hope.
Just blackness, forever searching for closure.
Is there happiness? Nope.
I'm alone. Endlessly and truly.
Echo back, a forgotten realm.
There, things exist only
With giggled secrets at the helm.
Echo now, a comforting time.
A job, a family, friends.
I don't even mind the daily grime.
I wish for the present to never end.
When you remember everything,
Both big and small,
Joy is charming,
And sadness right down the hall.
I love my memories of Al,
They take me back to a happy place.
Will I tell him that someday? I think I shall,
But probably never to his face.
I look at him and think,
"Gee, Carrie, he loved you so much more,
Than anything, and in a blink,
You walked out that door."
Some days that brings me to my knees, and
Others it makes me stronger.
What I realize, though, is that life is grand,
And that we should love for eternity and longer.
I see the way he looks at me,
And I have to wonder what
He's thinking. Would I shout with glee
If I heard it? Or would it finalize that our book has been shut?
I'll smile and play along,
Trying not to ask myself, "What if?"
But I still know that I was wrong
To call our relationship quits.
I'm going to fight,
Every day, maybe forever,
Until I feel that everything's all right
Between me and him. Never
Will I stop trying to make things better.
It's not in me, now, to give in.
I want to be a stable ship in stormy weather,
And I want to live my life my way, no matter what the whim.
I, Carrie Wells, am a warrior,
And no one can take my place.
Forgotten dreams are a foreigner
To me, and life is a grand race.
