Thanks For Forgetting Me

Change my name
Get out of dodge
She won’t care

Name not found
Front door wide open
The flakes of my heart begin

Lie to her she won’t know
If I take her seriously this will be a commitment
Better things to do

Hard to believe
Doubt overcomes
Since when am I the last resort

Nothing

Who are you?

Tears come to me
Not them too
No one else

It’s alright
I am here
I won’t forget you

Comfort

Months

Nothing

Loss

Liar...
You forgot

My heart is shredded
Diluted,
Frayed...
Broken
Red scraggly pieces
The only remains of the third world war

Questions

Answers in an unsure manner

Leaves

Tries to question hastily

Nothing

Continual questions

Meager replies

Typical

No one was ever telling the truth
No one ever planned to remember
They were just empty words

Limp
Dead
Hurt

Forgotten
