poetry by j matthew waters

where’ve you been

so I started to say something
but then I stopped

no what
really what were you going to say

I don’t remember
I swear the other day there was something
I needed to tell you
but by the time I saw you I forgot it all
that is until another 12 hours passed by

what is it
tell me tell me tell me

I told you I don’t remember

but you just said you remembered 12 hours later

haven’t you been listening
that was forever ago

may two thousand twenty

  1. I can’t understand how I forget something only minutes after thinking it!

  2. Ain’t that the truth
