for forgetting


17 September 2014

I have learnt
that there will never
be enough time
to rid the presence
of your absence
from every aching
remaining piece of me.

“You left me with a fire in my lips
and a hunger in my veins
that would make anyone forsake love.”

The first time I left you
you told me that I 
never really loved you.
From that day on I always
struggled to believe 
that you wanted forever.

The second time I left you
I told you that your heart
was too heavy for me
to carry alone, 
but the truth is I knew
that you needed to learn
that I was doing everything
I could do to understand
what it meant to truly
love you.

The third time I left you
was because the woman
that I fell in love with had
never really come back.
She became a distant memory,
and a reason to constantly
be looking back at the past.

And after all of this
I still cannot believe
that I love you was
ever meant to be
left unsaid, and I know
that even in darkness
you have always been
the most cherished
love of my life.

These dreams
are consuming
my fingertips.
Every line has
etched itself into
the palms of my hands,
and now every time
I look down
I cannot help
but see the tale
of two lovers
that went wrong.

You can feel the kiss
of every star within the 
galaxy as they come
through the sky to 
lay their gentle touch
upon each crevice
of your frail body.

I have found myself
waiting, wishing
to be inside of her.

To discover every
lingering part of 
her existence
would be like learning
the untold secrets 
of the world.

She is temptation, and
the complexity of her mind
is inevitably what makes her
so beautiful to me.

“I suppose I never really loved you,
because love believes in second chances,
and that is something that I will never give to you.”

And all those fights
I knew what they meant.
The truth is that sometimes
there have to be goodbyes
that no amount of sorry
could prevent.

the sad fact
is that I am
simply not ready
to let you go.

The memory of you has proven 
to be the most difficult to write.
I cannot write how I caressed 
your sheets with my skin, 
or how you always smelt
of cigarettes and wine. 

I cannot commit 
your presence to paper.

I cannot express the feel 
of your fingertips along the lines 
of my delicate pout, 
or the unexplainable softness 
of your skin mapping out 
its new home on my back. 

There are so many things 
I never want to forget, 
but I struggle as my mind 
argues for love, and my heart 
screams that these bruises 
are too fresh. 

"My voice became too soft when you were around.” - Mariah Gordon-Dyke

My first assignment in my writing class is to tell the story of how I came to love writing, and how it has influenced my life. The only problem is I am not sure I know how to tell this story, without also telling the story of how I fell in love with the woman I believed would be the love of my life. I suppose the true story is that I learnt to love writing because it helped me express the love I felt for her.

He was the kind of lover

that held an appetite

for more than I ever

had to offer.

We were never in love,
but my God,
we were so close.
