because you have not remembered

i am afraid you

have forgotten everything
worthy of memory – all the ways
you have died – all the dreams you
have materialized.

i am afraid you

will wrap yourself against
everything you seek,
the shadow in your belly
birthing the shape of what
you want to forget.

i am afraid you

will never forgive yourself
those things forgotten
yet held like a knife over your throat
and guarding the voice
which could be yours.

i am afraid i

will ache  miss  wait
while you
shiver another day into
half-life

forget & forget & forget
