Remember?

My hands lay
outstretched
Fingers apart
The spaces empty
I look up,up,up
Sky stretched taut
Clouds spattered upon it
I look sideways at the ground
Black hair past

my shoulders
A tear trickles down my cheek
I sit up startled
Why am I crying?
I shouldn't remember
Do you remember
when

you
used
to sit
by me
in the woods
staring at the sky
closing our eyes
hands together
No tears
and now
you aren't here
now the sky's
making me dizzy
I wanna puke
Tears coming faster
A flood on bare skin
beccause now you
are

gone
I sit up

run

run

run
Through the woods
Away from where
I remember everything
But I'm not supposed to

Don't want to
Wanna remember you and smile


No tears

Like you would've wanted
would've wanted me to be happy


sorry
Bend over

Heave this morning's cereal


sorry

I sob louder


sorry

Echoes through the trees


sorry

Gotta go


sorry

Can't remember without


a tear


sorry


sorry

I should move on shouldn't I?

Yes of course, but I can't

Some things



are

just



too
hard
