I Don’t Remember

Forget

I don’t remember

Ecstasy

The summer loves

And winter tragedies

Softly spoken promises

And bitter recrimination

.

I don’t remember

You

Any of you

Partners in crimes

Too sweet to resist

.

I don’t remember

Wounds

Carved by bloody lies

And broken promises

Or the hand

That wielded the knife

.

I don’t remember

.
