Forgetting

I am forgetting,
honey –
for your face is fading into nothingness
and my memory of you
is drifting too far from me.

I had promised,
to never forget you
and I clung too long to our broken love
trying to remember
more than just the pain that sleeps within us.

I am forgetting
the scent of your skin
that reminded me so much of home,
and kept me remembering
our love.

I am forgetting you,
honey.

I would call you,
to apologize
for breaking my promise,
but I can’t quite remember
your name.
