half past forgetting

this is where time mimics acid
and burns memory at the edges
like batteries that burst
and crust over

half past forgetting
that desire once lived in your eyes
and beckoned my hands and lips
to be roommates

these are the moments
where you will watch me dry heave
craving your presence
and finding a fix in past thoughts of your curves

half past forgetting
where you let me into your heart
since you've let fear make a maze
and you sit waiting for a rescue
that you've lied about wanting to everyone

except me
