How Many More Poems?

Sep 27, 2010 in ,

Some of my poems have revolved around something… or someone. But now it just feels different, like I've moved on. And the thing is that I have, but I just can't not write poems on this subject. I feel disgusted now whenever I start poems on that subject - okay, fine, person - but I still do. I still get inspiration from this person, and it's just such a habit. I know I've moved on, I know I don't like this person anymore in that way whatsoever, and yet…

I really want to write one more poem, you know? To say goodbye, to have closure and such. But the problem is that I want that poem to be p-e-r-f-e-c-t. I don't want 5 poems on saying goodbye, because how can goodbye be goodbye if I keep saying goodbye over and over again? I want every single one of my poems about him to be perfect before I completely stop. I mean, if I continue to edit those poems, how can I say that I'm done with them? But when can a poem be declared perfect?
