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.
