She said:
Promise me
That you’ll forget everything happened between us
Everything I said
Everything I did
Even my name
That you won’t make me the Scattered Clots in your arteries blocking the clean and fresh blood from your heart
Promise me
That you’ll forget me
And                     will                         move                         ahead.

At that moment
In between
The swiftly rotating ground
The thoughts of her mascara-bleeding eyes
Her leaking nose and wet handkerchief
Ruthlessly whistling wind and
The collapsing building like accelerating train.

I couldn’t dare to refuse
    I promise that I will forget you
And then the phone line lay disconnected but I continue:
I promise I will drop you from my mind everyday
    I will forget as much as possible about you everyday
    I will eat, I will sleep, I will breathe
    And will move ahead with your dying memories
    But then maybe
    I’ll be able to forget you completely
    Till the eternity only.

    Touching. Making me cry. Your words touch the deepest corners of my soul.

    1. I’m pleased to know that my words can do the impossible.

      Nothing is impossible.

    1. Sad it is.. It takes eternity to forget someone we love.

  2. I know that pain 😦 how many times do we promise to move on… To forget… And yet wander back to the memories of the love lost…? 😦

    1. Always is, the situation.

  3. reminded me of the lyrics of Bowie’s ‘the next day’, somehow;

    I’ve found that putting ‘&-n-b-s-p-;’ (i.e. without the hyphons – I had to put the hyphons in to show the code as text) between each word of those long lines lets them project beyond the ‘margin’ of the page

    1. It feels good to know that. And yeah, thank you for the tip.
