I try to forget, I really do.
How can I forget you holding me close,
Your hand in mine,
As if we owned the world?
I shudder at the sound of your name.
Memories of pain stream down my face.
How can I act like everything is normal
Now that you’re not holding me tighter,
Now that my hand
Is not in yours?
There’s a place in my heart
For words unsaid,
Stitching, searing words
That remind me
