i was infatuated because
when you were around
it was like nobody else was in the room
-take it as you will

18-when you know

how will i know if i love him?
you will fill entire pages
with words about him
you won’t see a single flaw
not even when he drinks too much
not even when he talks about the past

and you will ache for the words
i love you
to spill from your lips like waterfalls
but you will be so afraid
that the only waterfalls you’ll know
are the tears you cry with fear of losing him

when you know
you will know

it was only when I was twenty
that I remembered it
i delved into a part of my mind
where I kept old phone numbers
and useless facts
you know
the stuff that only exists in the background
like a forgotten hard-drive
where I kept old passwords
and pin codes
you know
the stuff that you didn’t know you still had
like a dusty memory stick
anyway
it was only when I was twenty
that I remembered it
i delved into a part of my mind
where I kept the memory that
i did not give him
consent
