History Lessons (Poem #16)

You asked,
“The guy you dated a year back,
was it love?”
and i said
“Ofcourse it was.”

“Everything you did,
do you remember all of it?”

“Ofcourse I do.
I remember long walks, long talks,
long fights, terrible nights.
I remember being happy,
as much as I remember
the pain he caused me.

There are things I can’t forget and
there are things
that no matter how bad it went
I can’t seem to regret it.”

I notice you frown,
you were just about to say something
but still end up looking down
so i carried on

“Maybe the reason why
I did not forget
is because I am not meant
to do the same mistakes once again.
And maybe,
just incase we hurt each other in the end,
Just know that I would still remember everything.
Know that just because things went wrong, doesn’t mean it has been wrong all along.
Just because we’re through,
doesn’t mean I’ll be erasing you.”

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
