Do You Remember?

Do you remember the time
When you use to have something
Legitimately worth smiling about?
Do you remember when
You dutifully took the pledge
And proudly pinned the small red
While your eyes shone brightly
And just for a fraction of a second
You actually believed your own promises?
And you can’t forget the day
That we lay contentedly
On the very edge of the thick grass
And you told me
Your lives ambitions and your dreams
I’m sure you must at least remember that
But I don’t
I remember you burying yourself
Deep within the folds of your thin
Burgundy jacket, whilst tears
Streaming in thin rivulets
Flowed down your face
I remember your vermillion shaded eyes
And that sly smile plastered on your face
As you stumbled towards me
Your mouth already bleeding excuses
Like a severed arm
Of course you don’t remember
I used to be so sure, so confident
And now when I look at you
I’m impressed
When you remember your own name
