Remission

I had always imagined
I’d meet the love
of my life
in the most romantic of places
like a cafe
or on a train
and we’d fall in love
from the moment our eyes met.

But then I met you
in the most mundane place
imaginable
and everything I had imagined
was wrong.
I didn’t even know
the first time I had heard you
say your name
that I’d be repeating it
for the rest
of my life.

And I think that
perhaps
I will always carry a candle for you
even until it burns my hand.
And when the light has long since been
extinguished
I will be there
surrounded by darkness
holding what remains,
for I quite simply
cannot let go.

Even though I find myself
Wondering how much precious time
We will waste in this cursed silence,
I just wanted you to know
that I will never care
as to how far you push me away
because when I first told you that I would stay
I meant it.

You’re a little lost
and a little damaged
but you are far from hopeless.
I know who you are
I love who you are
and that’s why I’ll stay
So maybe you can learn
to love yourself, too.
But can you promise me something?

Please don’t forget
the songs we listened to
or the things we talked about.
Please don’t forget
the little inside jokes we had
or the laughs we shared
Please don’t forget my smile
or the sound of my voice.

Please,
don’t forget me.

  1. I truly wish you happiness. I wish for you to find that love again in someone else, as much as you may not want to. I wish for you to keep looking at the Luna and know there’s someone looking for you back. Your words are humble, real and the most sincere. Thank you for sharing.
