Memory

All things forgotten
are meant to be remembered
by the heart, the beautiful
and sad.
Like from the moment
I first saw you
and heard you whisper
that song
only my heart could grasp,
I knew life is about
falling in love.
I wanted to be with you
and talk to you
about love and friendship.
I wanted to marry you someday,
spend my days holding your hand,
stay with you each night
while your feet touches mine,
and love the mornings when
I could rest my head on your chest.
A dogging dream,
as I recall it.
It felt like an all-out freedom
to finally wake up from that.
Slowly, I started forgetting
about every song you whispered,
all those smiles you never returned,
and that kind of stares
I only saw in dreams.
Then, one day
I saw your face again
with all the memories flashing back.
It’s more painful. I should have
never seen you again.
Let alone in this state,
in this place.
I was riveted by your
sad, closed eyes,
by the scent of black coffee,
by the tears of your widowed wife.

Remember

Remember the first time
our eyes met
the stare that melts
the gaze that made my heart
hammered in my steady chest.
And suddenly all the noises
from the street became a music to me,
you’re singing my song,
painting my childhood dream
and writing our love story.
I was fascinated by the idea
that someone I’d been searching for
had found me.
We watched movies
with images of us in the future,
read books to witness
how perfect we are together.
I remember you kissing me
in my forehead
after telling me your secret.
Like the sun, resting on the sea,
that soon disappeared,
I hate saying goodbye.
Remember when you told me
you’re leaving,
I wanted to believe you’re just lying
even if I knew that you’re the most
honest person I’d ever met.
Now all I can do is squeeze
my eyes tightly,
forget the darkness I see.
Remember our story
because all I have now
is the memories of us.
