I Remember You

I will remember you.

i learned that you chose to forget by entirely declaring that for you, I do not exist.

it's alright. that is your way of coping with loss. but as i've maintained, right before we separated, your way is not the learning way. it keeps from accepting your weaknesses. it keeps you with your mask on. it keeps you lying.

i hope that the lies that you learned to claim, will not come to haunt you, especially in the present state of your relationship. and in this age.

this is the age of social media. no secret can be kept. there is always someone, some thing, some place, that will shake that resolve of forgetting. you will not know what will hit you.

i really felt so sorry for you. and until now, i still do. i pity you for the choices made just to avoid loneliness. i pity you so much.

again, learn to accept and acknowledge.

i am not going any where

and you have to re-learn forgetting.

i exist as you exist and we existed.

face the truth.
