I guess

I should remember

the curve of your cheek

the reach of your arms

the pitch of your voice.

I remember

the imprint of your fingers

against my thigh, rising scarlet.

I remember

the strident screech

that foretold your speeches

about the unfairness of life.

I remember

the flash of your eyes

the thud of the door

being poor.

I guess

I remember




(FYI- written in persona)

    That disclaimer at the end elicited a sigh of relief, then a fallen heart because it rings true for others.

  2. The strident screech would be a sign that we needed to break out the earplugs. 🙂
