forgetting ~ 1985/age 15

      summer breeze
      starry-eyed smiles
      convincing words
      I'll love you, forever

      open and clear
      as its time and place
      this feeling of endlessness
      strictly reminiscent

      of old emotion, refusing to fade
      reminders of
      a past lost
      these bitter leftovers
      sparked with sadness

      nearly forgotten
      if you could read me
      you could see
      as your vision of me
      was blurred

      remember to remind yourself
      as you remind me
