To Forget

To Forget (on flickr)

To forget is the disguise of to ignore;
To ignore is the disguise of to be jealous.
When jealousy is, therefore, at play again,
Ignoring becomes so hard a mountain to conquer;
Forgetting becomes so difficult an art of master,
And I can only be like a wounded soldier
Breathing weakly, weakly in the pouring rain of sorrow.
