a half-remembered love

we were fools
and if I could tell you now
who I am
I would tell you
but there are no words
for such things
and as we’ve both learned–
words are as small
as their own bent-knee promises
some whispered, and some shouted
popping off like dime-store firecrackers
fogging the morning’s solitude
with their ethereal mist
brittle twigs that snap underfoot
tho our footsteps, trepidacious
grains of sand that shift
on a distant beach, two oceans away
twisting under the tide’s whim
each becoming the next
each becoming anonymous
like a half-remembered love
and if I could tell you now
I’d stand silent before you
my only truth, in my eyes
where the truth
has always been
