fear

Posted to Poetry




it scares me
to think
that in a few years
i may not remember
this very ordinary
day, the way your
wide eyes made
me laugh, the faint
scent of sleep
in your hair as
you nodded off
for just a second
only to wake up
remembering one
of a hundred things
you wanted to do.
...to think that
i may forget
the exact charm of
your voice or the
hold of your hand...
it pains me
but even worse
i think
would be if
you forgot too.
