I gave myself 14 days to forget you.
on the first day, my pillow was soaked with tears.
on the second day, i allowed myself to start forgetting.
on the third day, you called to see how much of my heart you still had. i was a fool for picking up.
on the fourth day, i thought of you a million times.
on the fifth day, you called to extend the olive branch. i took it. i was a fool.
on the sixth day, i went partying. i was reminded of you at every turn. i let myself be romanced by a fast talking boy who wanted to love me in a language my grand mother would approve of.
on the seventh day, i drank till i fell asleep.
on the eight day, i deleted your number. and your messages. i deleted your messages without reading them.
on the ninth day, you called, i didn't pick up. my heart is not the wave to your sea, i refuse to let it be pulled back and forth.
on the tenth day, i let my fast talking boy cook for me.
on the eleventh day, i let myself smile.
on the twelfth day, i couldn't remember what it felt like to be loved by you. i don't think i ever really knew. i think i imagined all of it.
on the thirteenth day, i sat under the shower for 45 minutes. i still couldn't get you off my skin.
on the fourteenth day, i let my tongue wander into another.
i no longer remember what you sound like.
maybe it never really happened.
i may have imagined it all.
i hope i did.
you were a small fire i loved watching burn.
p.s: sometimes when i go on my blog, i can't see my comment box. if that's happening to you too, many use another browser other than google chrome?
