poetry by j matthew waters

how you’ve changed

how do you explain
to someone you love
there is beauty in pain
especially when unable
to feel anything yourself
numb to the very idea
that the physical world
as you know it is dying

forgiving is the easy part
though never sure
about the forgetting
especially considering
those moments
that may or may not have
defined your influence
or imaginary existence

may two thousand twenty
