Thoughts of you, inescapable.
I’m just as trapped as one could get.
So my mind drifts away from you
while I remember to forget.
Loved you so hard it left a bruise,
so deep it hasn’t healed yet.
But my heart stops aching sometimes,
when I remember to forget.
Today you’re just a memory,
a brilliant sun that now has set.
Some day I’ll smile at the sunrise
if I remember to forget.
