Amnesia


I got angry,
At someone I didn't know.

I mistook a guy,
For someone I once knew.

I confessed a love,
And he didn't answer.

I kissed my cousin,
Actually, he kissed me.

I held his hand,
On the back of his dad's car.

I shut them out,
Along with their screaming.

I curled up,
In a corner to escape the fighting.

I ran home,
Tears streaming down my face.

I wish I didn't remember,
All these memories,
Turned into regrets.

I forgot his face,
And he remembered mine.

I stole beer,
From the cabniet, not to long ago.

I lied.

I cried.

I shut them out.

I drank to forget about

All those memories,
Turned into regrets.

And I just want to forget.

I just want to forget.

But I can't.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
