Theme III: Memory, “You’ve Forgotten Me”

By Connor Peters

God, I can’t remember anything else.

I can’t remember not fighting.

I can’t remember not choking back my words.
I can’t remember not holding myself back.
I can’t remember anything other than this.
God, what is this?
I can’t seem to remember.
I’m choking on the tears of a memory,
of a memory where I’m fighting like hell,
where I’m trapped within myself.
God, who am I?
I’m fighting like hell in my mind,
I can’t remember not fighting.
I’m crying silent tears as
I choke on my unspoken words.
God, who are you?
The deliverer of this hell?
The opponent in my memories?
The hands choking me?
The cage in which I’m trapped?
God, I can’t remember you.
Where have you gone?
What has your absence done?
Why have you made me like this?
Why don’t you remember me?
