Letting Go, Poetry

Unremembering You

girl with smile staring at camera and hair in her face

Everything is quiet now—
save the beating of my heart,
and the whisper of words I try to unremember,
I love yous like broken records in my head.
Your voice—
a scratch in the vinyl
yet I can’t stop playing the track
and it skips and it skips
and it skips
a cycle—
my dreams, our laughs.
I hear you—
the melody I can’t unsing
but I close my eyes
hum louder
until I drown out the sound of you
with silence.

Everything is quiet now—
and I am not afraid.
