It’s funny how you can remember the face
but not the name or the games that you played,
I think if I’d stayed it might have been different.
It keeps me awake and some nights I can’t sleep,
difficult to keep the thoughts from arising
like my eyes are in an old cinema screen
watching a film that I’ve seen but not seen.
She was real and not celluloid
she toyed with me
and I loved it
left her anyway.
Is it the same for you?
do you remember
that special one?
the only one that you
could think of?
and did you leave
