I wish I forgot how to cry.
I forgot the way your body ached
After a long day.
I forgot the color of your favorite shirt.
I forgot the photographs you took
With your tongue sticking out at me.
I forgot how easily the drugs
Took over our lives.
I forgot the scent of your hair,
Littered on our bathroom floor.
I forgot your scars
And the stories behind them.
I forgot the needles
And the ghosts you wanted to forget.
I forgot how you'd sing to me off key
While strumming your acoustic.
And the way your basement gave me the creeps.
I forgot just how loud you screamed
When they called my name at graduation,
With your fist in the air
And how I was almost embarrassed by you
I forgot how easily you made me laugh
And how difficult it was to let you go
I sat next to your headstone
With my face pressed against your name
Forgetting how to say goodbye.
And I wish I forgot how to cry.
