Writing Prompt: Forgotten Memories

I couldn’t imagine living without you

Now I want nothing more than for you to be a forgotten memory

Faded into the background

Receding into the depths of the ocean

Hidden in the thickness of a forest

Lost in the empty mass of a chasm

~

I couldn’t imagine being angry with you

Now I want nothing more than for you to be a forgotten memory

The hurt speaks louder in the silence

Crying beneath the sounds of my breathing

Shattering the metaphorical bones of my spirit

Mounting my heart on the wall to be displayed

~

I couldn’t imagine not loving you

Now I want nothing more than for you to be a forgotten memory

I want to forget your face

Praying I forget your walk

Hoping your name, and anyone who shares it, fall deaf on my ears

Desperate to purge you from my thoughts

~

I couldn’t imagine hating the likes of you

Now I want nothing more than for you to be a forgotten memory

Frustrated with what I had become with you

Disgusted with what I’ve accepted from you

Scared I will fall without you

~

Still happy to end this thing between me and you

Yet you’re stained in my past

Etched in the scars you left on my heart

I now have to carry you with me 

Showing yourself in the slump of my back

Reflecting yourself in the bags of my eyes

I am delaying

I am expecting

I am anticipating 

For you to become my forgotten memory
