When it hurts to remember
I want to be a breeze to forget
Like your first memory
Like your first heartbreak

Let fade the warmth of my smile
And the cashmere caress of my fingers against your skin
Like film, overdeveloped
Dissolving into sepia-stained nothingness

May the ravages of aging be so kind to you
That when you ail and call for me
Those syllables escape your grasp
And miss your tongue
For saying my name will leave you bitterly numb

If I turn to ash in the winter of our love
And the blackberry ripeness of our time together is cut short
Torture yourself none, my earthbound prisoner
And from your brain, my face, erase
