Abandoning me, abandoning you.

by Poet on the Piano   Sep 24, 2023

Just shy of
two weeks,
already losing
time once shared,
albeit slowly,
tinges of a safe world
you constructed,
now fading.

When I can't fool
desires of the mind,
I sink to the floor
and pick a memory
to crawl inside,
perhaps with the intent
to torture myself,
perhaps with the intent
to regress to who I was.

The fear of forgetting -
a pain I must postpone.

But tonight,
I couldn't make it last.
Unable to dwell
in the space you offered,
unable to feel
my burdens lifted.

I wonder if you're
rejecting me
even in recollections.

I wonder if soon,
I'll ask for proof
of your existence.
