The following is an untitled and undated poem about love lost. I imagine this was written in the early 2000’s.
Even after years have passed
And the details of your face
Are faded like the pages
Of the diary where I
Blissfully recorded memories
And moments filled with you.
After those times I want to call you
But I can’t remember the number
Not that it wasn’t disconnected
When I tried to call before
And the emails are undelivered
And from home you’re long gone.
After I forget your slight imperfections
And your laughter doesn’t ring in my ears
And I can’t hear your voice anymore
When those sunrises we shared
Were three thousand moons ago
I’ll realize it’s really over.
Though time has passed
And memories have yellowed
I remember the love you gave
And how you shook my universe
And altered my world
I’ll always remember you.
