the story of forgetting



Disease: dark, empty.

Waiting for hours.

That strange thing,

of disappearing


It would be just me,

if she vanished.

The world beyond was black.

But I was looking in the wrong direction.


A hand: soft, womanly, impossible.

On a breeze, "I'm here," she said.

"I'm sorry."
