Remember, Stop

Every once in a while
I have to
Remember
To breathe
In and out
So I won’t
Choke
Myself.

Every once in a while
I have to
Stop remembering
Your name, so
It doesn’t
Echo
Every word
I say.

Every once in a while
I have to
Remember
To put one foot
In front
of the other
So I won’t fall
On my
Cold face.

Every once in a while
I have to
Stop remembering
All those times
So I don’t think
My life
Turned out
Wrong.

Every once in a while
I have to
Remember
To wake up
My voice
When I speak
So words don’t
Come out as
Squeaks.

Every once in a while
I have to
Stop remembering
To think about
You
All of the
Live
Long
Time.

Every once in a while
I have to
Remember
To make my eyes
Glow
So they don’t
Know
I miss you.
