erase without rewind

In love, poetry on January 19, 2006 by carinasuyin

You write and then erase.
Write and erase.
Think. Write. Erase.
Tears well up and you fight them all back.
You purse your lips and sink into the shadows.
You stare into the lamp till you’re almost blind.
Close. Open. Black circle. Close.
In the darkness you remember.
In the darkness you surrender.
In the darkness you curl, cramp and cough.
Phlegm as stubborn as memories.

For in the light, you would prefer to forget.
