for forgetting


31 August 2014

7:00 A.M.
I think back to that morning and I see you in your orange tiger T-shirt with your hair a mess, and your mind still half asleep. The warmth in your sheets reminds me of something familiar, as if I was always meant to wake up in that space next to you.

12:00 P.M.
I spent the day creating memories of my own in your home. I listened as your Father shared stories with me of how he found his true love and how he built his life from the ground up. I am not sure I ever told you this, but he told me that he believed I was good for you. If only he knew that my love was rooted far beneath the surface of friendship.

8:00 P.M.
We are sitting on your bed, there is distance between us and the silence is suffocating me. I am holding my knees to my chest. My body is shaking; you are quiet. I ask you if you still love me, and you tell me that you are not sure that you ever did.

Let me hear you say it,
that you no longer need me.
The words will slip through your lips, 
just like I love you used to.
Tell me I am wasting my life away
waiting on an apology that will never
see the light of day.

I understand now
that sometimes
love isn’t enough.

I will never feel the need
to apologize for the words
I wrote in order to cope
with the emptiness you left.
I will never feel the need
to apologize for how I
chose to put myself
back together.

We were too starved of love
to be left alone together.
We tore each other to pieces,
leaving nothing behind but 
dry remains of who we once were. 
And now that we are through, 
the only thing that stands 
is a tale of two lovers 
gone mad with starvation.

 I cannot keep waiting
       for you to decide
  that you want me. 
      I cannot keep waiting
    for you to change
            your mind.

And no matter
how hard I try
I will never be able
to outrun the ache
that lingers due to
your absence.

Forgetting does not come easy
and I understand now that you
will always be a part of me.

I have come to peace with the fact
that pieces of you remain flowing
through my veins, and that I
will always be haunted by
your memory.

He spends his nights
dedicated to healing
every broken piece
of my fragile skin
with his warm hands
and his tender kiss.
