My love,

I plan to forget you

Little by little,

Gently unwillingly,

Starting with that smile

That smile on your face

Every time our eyes meet

Indecisively sweet

Cautiously seeking

an approval

Distantly within.

Next is your nose.

How it touches mine

As your head nods

Between our cheeks

Moist air lingers

At the intersection

Of time before time.

Us, before reality.

I would also like to forget

Everything about your arms

How strong and how soft they are

Holding me together,

Bits and pieces,

And for once,

I could give everything,

And still have everything.

Last, I would like to forget this plan

This plan to know you,

To want you,

To love you,

Little by little,

Starting with that smile…
