But You Said We’ll Do It All

This is the danger
Of memory:

Gummy bears
The smell of fresh
Blood in my hands
Long eyelashes
Afternoon light
The color blue
People who don’t cheat
Movie trailers
Flashes of happy
Voices that break

They all remind me of you.

This is the confusion
Of remembering:

The smell of her skin
The heat of her thighs
The sadness in her eyes
When I mention your name
By accident

This is the loophole
of forgetting:

Sometimes, when I tell her “I love you too”

I am not sure
If I’m not still

Saying it to you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
