Please don’t forget when we met
there was plenty of hope in my eyes and
spirit flowing through my veins.

Please remember me as the girl
who fell in love with you
and not the woman
you broke in the end.

Unfold those letters I wrote to you-
just streams of consciousness.
Could I not shed light on
every good part of you and
help you forget the filth
and the darkness?

Please don’t forget I was once
lovely and unscathed.
