I Don't Care To Remember You - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

The candle light flickers,

the wind blows memories of you in my face-

my mind's stolen moments of you

because I don't care to remember you.



Every promise that was never made was broken.

Whether or not I still love you,

I don’t care to remember.

Oblivion is my newest companion,

and I hold it desperately.

I don’t care to remember the light in your eyes;

good or bad, memories of you I reject

Stay gone.

I don’t care to remember to you



If I am hoping the sky will spit you down hale and whole

that is only my heart’s fantasy

I for one don’t care to remember you.

In my head you leave everyday,

for every new day brings with it fresh longing for you.

So I put up higher. Bigger. and Stronger barricades.

I don’t care to remember you.



Too many barriers, but they are not strong enough.

I don’t care to remember you.



I often go back to November-

because in spite of me I still remember you.

These sunsets that are part of each day,

remind me of that first time we stood together,

two strangers united by the sound music.




I don't care to remember you.

I don't care to remember you.

There's so much more I could say,

but it would never be enough.

The last time I saw you still burns in the back of my mind

I don't care to remember you
