Forget Me.

Forget the way that I cried

Hot sodium chloride that burnt dry your skin and stained your cheek

Forget me. Forget me and

Forget the smallness of my hand when I grabbed at your wrist

At the onslaught of the cars that threatened your path, and heaved from my lungs cold sharp relief

Forget me

Forget the warmth of my shape in your sheets while I slept

And you kissed my forehead, ripe with exhaustion and praised my mouth

Forget me

Forget that I loved you, forget my face, forget my flaws, forget me forget me forget me

So I can move on without the shame of my shadow flickering on

In your neocortex
