I self impose amnesia
To relieve myself of you.
To make my way forward
Without remembering a thing
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.
