Not One Dreamer But Two

Not One Dreamer But Two

A Poem by Sarah W. French


Once I remembered your face
now I can't even remember your name.
I shut my eyes to forget
but your brown curls are still there.
In drunken madness
i broke your every possession. 
I can't hear your voice
but remember the words.
My memory won't let me keep you
but it won't let me get rid of you.
My darling...could I have
made you up inside my mind?
If I try hard enough I can
smell the rose I gave you.
If I try I can picture
your blue dress against pale skin.
My dearest...all I have left
is the chipped cup and
a few cracked memories.
I'll never deserve you
so perhaps you were never real.
Perhaps I made you up
inside my head as a reminder.
A reminder of what can never
be true for a beast like me.
