I hope
You know
That
I’ve spent a lot
Of time
Lately
Trying to erase
Every
Beautiful memory
We’ve made
Together.
Unfortunately, removing
Unwanted memories
From your
Heart
Isn’t as easy
As throwing away
The sunflower
You picked
For me
Or even
The socks you
Got for me
That day.
Slowly,
But surely
I am replacing
The vast continent
You inhabit
In my head
And even
My heart.
I’ll
Have you
Know that
I’ve been
Going out
Of my way
To make
New, even more
Breathtaking moments
With myself
Just to
Further
Rid myself
Of any
Part of my
Soul you’ve
Touched.
I
Listen to
The song that
Reminds me
Of you
The most
Until my only
Memory of
It is
The summer breeze
Against my neck
And the way his voice makes
Me feel like
I’m floating.
I take
Walks around
Town now, and
Listen to the chorus
Of insects singing
So happily because
Who wouldn’t
In
A world
So beautiful?
I won’t let you
Steal the
Unbounded beauty of nature
From me.
I politely accept
People’s compliments
On how
Wonderful
I smell
And one day
I’ll forget
How much
You loved
My scent.
And I even
dare to think
That one
Day, when
Someone brings you
Up in
Polite conversation,
I’ll have to
Say “who?”,
Because by
Then I’ll
Even have
Forgotten your
Name.
Because,
In the end,
The only
Person I’ve
Got
Is me
And I’ve
Got to
Protect her
Like you never
Did.
