Forgetting

Forgetting

A Poem by Abigale LeCavalier

Forgetting


Thinking of you

in a way abstract,

trying to find significance

in words,

turning the page smoking

burning the fingertips.


And I know you are listening

to my far away song,

I'm not quite dead yet,

just skeptical the way

the mouse is of the cat.


I have been swallowed whole before.


Letting go of water,

not willing or wanting affliction,

pasting your picture

at the ending 

of an unread book.


Placing a milk glass in your hand; invisible,

you have touched my soul and left it.


Never forgetting the Moon

and that I'm always in your shadow.

this is very cool. there is a mysterious, playful longing. an indecisiveness that tears. a love/hate. great metaphors. great intro & ending. catchy title. very skillfully done. :)
