Today is the day I let go of you.

When you ask me ten years from now I will name this date. I will remember

the way you smelled when you sat down beside me uninvited, but so wanted, and how I could barely open my eyes.

Today is the day I erase you.

When you ask me ten years from now I will name this date. I will forget

how you held me when my heart couldn't, how we lived in different lands sleeping side by side, how you never needed me and I always needed you.

Today is the day I get over you.

When you ask me ten years from now I will name this date. I will wake

to find myself standing in the middle of my life, recalling days when I would loose myself in your love, and Sweet Thing will be on repeat.
