Forgetting You

Forget you
It’s not what
I’d planned
Your tender touch
My uncertain desires
How you knew

Words whispered sparingly
Deeply penetrating
Those secret places
I revealed
You knew
And you grinned

Forget you
That’s what I heard
It’s what you wanted
Nothing is forever
You said
Not even us

You didn’t come back
Yes I knew
I didn’t cry
Maybe I did
I cried inside
Where no one could see

I want to forget you
I want to forget your touch
I want to forget that
It wasn’t my plan
To love you
