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.

Darling

Tell me you’re here, darling,
whispering my name
through shattered promises –
aching like broken bones
and open wounds.

What has become of us, darling?
Two strangers sitting across the room,
glaring at each others faces –
with regret burning in our eyes
and resentment aching within our hearts.

I loved you, dearly,
and I know you did, too,
it seems like this world has been to weak
to carry our unearthly love.

We still glare at each other
and smile –
there is nothing left to say,
darling.
