Inscriptions

I always tease
My memory is repugnant

Absolutely, unacceptably inadequate.

But when it comes to you,
I remember everything you reveal.

I memorize every word as it escapes your lips,
Every letter that forms to make up sentences you write.
Inscribing it into my memory.

Because I’m afraid.

One day I’m going to lose you.
And those words —
those letters, those snippets of thoughts,
They’re all I will have left to hold onto.
