No more writer's block!*Yay! & Voilá!*Originally inspired by the new law promising internet users the "right to be forgotten" as proposed by the European Commission today.




Forget me not The right to be forgotten (Pantoum challenge)



I find what is meaningless to me fascinating
Alas, my never-ending infatuation for the unknown
Thus out of nowhere I give it a meaning
Inside my easily forgotten shriveled innocence 

Alas! My never-ending infatuation for the unknown
Leads me far and beyond
Inside my easily forgotten shriveled innocence 
But what I store inside me what appeases me

Is not knowledge it is not memories
What I met when I was who I felt I was is not what is
What exists inside me is : Who I keep becoming
I only remember that I have the right to be forgotten

What I met when I was who I felt I was is not what is
Forget me not oh how dearly I hold you in my heart
I only remember that I have the right to be forgotten
To me fascinating is what I keep finding meaningless

 



Authors note: Forget not what it means to treat each other
with newborn awe ~¤ ~

This is so awesome, and touches on a place that I - and likely many who've had or still have extensive cyber-lives - completely understand.

I must remind myself regularly that the shape of the people I've met online changes just as nature changes with unending constancy, and of how I wish for those who have met me to understand the same.

Thank you, I'm glad the block has shifted too. : )

The pantoum form seems to lend itself to this kind of interior writing, of the self, and referring back upon itself. Bravo indeed.

Brilliant, reads stunningly, keep pushing the boundries, I do. Why not. I love the way you use words and the structure. *Applause*

Love

Love, love, LOVE the author's note
at the end, my new favourite quote.

This Is really good, I DID find it
confusing but ONLY because I am
new to this style of poetry.

This is, one of many, what I LIKE
about Poetbay, the encouragement,
through challenges or feedback, to
grow and expand horizons as a poet.

WELL DONE on this prose.
