I have forgotten…

I have forgotten this thing
this thing called breathing
what it’s like to lay
effortless
easy
unaware 
unaffected…

I have fogotten this thing
this thing called comfort 
what its like to be wrapped
safely tucked in
warm
weatherproofed
protected…

I have forgotten this thing
this thing called forgetting
forgetting to forget
your color
your beauty
your reflection
sound of every word you’ve written…

I have forgotten this thing
this thing called L (cursor blinking)

no! I haven’t forgotten
*erases that line

I don’t know this thing
this thing called

…LOVE…

glazed in red…

I, alarmed by your hook
Pulled apart
This cracked and ripping heart
is bleeding 
the deepest red
and you don’t even know 
I wrap my sweater tighter
tourniquet loosed around my chest
here you turned me into winter
and I forever north 
remain frozen
dead 
glazed in red
