I self impose amnesia

To relieve myself of you.

To make my way forward

Without remembering a thing

About you

About us.


But you can’t be forgotten: you existed, you still exist.

And despite my pain, I’m still here, intact.

More intact in fact than when you were here.


So instead of forgetting,

I must push myself to remember us honestly.

Because honestly, you did not honor my ME.

And when we were together, neither did I.

So I choose to remember.
