Forget to Remember
If one day you plan on forgetting me:
Focus on not remembering,
when your hands clenched mine
as we marched the street-less sidewalks.
Or how your lips sealed mine,
when words could not
describe the synch of our thoughts.
Forget the filler words in those page-less books we read,
only concealing honest lies of foreign love affairs.
Happy endings that only shaped my dreams to a distorted reality.
But most importantly,
forget the time you wasted pursuing a failed goal.
Think not of reminiscing as you read these words.
Remember, I forgot already.
