I Give Myself Five Days To Forget You

i give myself five days to forget you

I give myself five days to forget you.
On the first day, I rust.
On the second I wilt.
On the third day, I sit with friends but I think about your tongue.
I clean my room on the fourth day. I clean my body on the fourth day.
I try to replace your scent on the fourth day.
The fifth day, I adorn myself like the mouth of an inmate.
A wedding singer dressed in borrowed gold.
The midas of cheap metal.
Tinsel in the middle of summer.
Crevice glitter, two days after the party.
I glow the way unwanted things do,
a neon sign that reads:
Come, I still taste like someone else’s mouth.
– Warsan Shire

Why I Didn’t Text You Back

Why I Didn't Text You Back

Why I didn’t text you back:

I was asleepI was drivingI was ignoring youI forgot

I saw your text and told myself that I was going to respond, but I wanted to finish what I was doing first.

After that, I got sidetracked and went to do something else and completely forgot your text even existed because I was stuck in my own tiny world until I went to text you days or even weeks later about something completely unrelated.
