Your name

Favorite song


Did you ever read?

What was your job again?

The one you kept changing

I mean

The one you expected

Me to believe.

Along with all the stories

You really think I fell for.


The distance

Is so comfortable

Since we can make ourselves

Be whatever we want

We can lie about devotion

Because the other person isn’t there

To see what we really do.

We can lie about loyalty

Pretend so much

That we forget

The other person

Is actually human

And feeling.


Today I ran across an old text from you

And it reminded me

How much

I’d forgotten about you.
