physical pain leaves no memory
It is the emotional pain that lingers
As if those thoughts have the same touch,
the same impact of her fingers.
It is only the beautiful memories that hurt
reminiscent of promises broken,
and the sweetness of heartfelt whispers
that will never again be spoken.
It only stops hurting when you forget
when those thoughts no longer re-surface
and tearful goodbyes filled with regret
prove she didn’t hurt you on purpose
And on the day you witness
what used to be your happiness
on another face,
you quickly come to realize
that your memories now belong
to the one who’s taken your place.
