Every day


Heidi Henning - 2011-04-26

Every day

Every day
I forget you
I forget the place where you cut your knee
I forget the house of rocks built by the sea
I forget you 

Every day
I no longer see you
I no longer see the cuts you made,
I no longer see a face with the suicides
I no longer see the vacant drip by your bed
I no longer see you 

Every day
I hold you
I hold your scream of ripped skin, 
I hold a bottle of pain, and killers
I hold your bony shoulders that held too much
I hold your heart 
 
Every day
I cannot
Forget you.
