How Do You Forget?


How do you forget?
The catch of a breath right before a kiss
The mold of your bodies in an embrace
The fit of your entwined fingers.
How do you forget?
The hush whispers late at night
The winds of your breath, your sighs
The intense conversation of your eyes.
How do you forget?
The secrets shared in the dark
The laughter shared in private
The tears shared in silent.
How do you forget?
A memory embedded deep within you
An existence in your life
A soul once fleetingly linked to yours.
How do you forget?
The past you hoped to last to a future
The struggle to keep a dying ember alive
The promises made wishfully.
After all of the remembering
How do you forget?
