I remember the man I thought you were.
I remember the wonder in your eyes.
I remember the feeling in your words.
I remember the smile that wouldn’t leave your lips.
& yet, somehow, in the moments that followed,
You forgot who I was.
You forgot who I wanted to be.
You forgot all the things that I meant.
& you forgot that I still remembered.
I remember everything.
I remember all that you forgot.
I remember sleepy you with my open eyes.
