I Have Long Forgotten

I have long forgotten the look on your face
    when I first called out your name,
    when I first felt shame,
    when I first lost my game.

I have long forgotten the sound of your voice
    when you tried to hush my cries,
    when you tried to cover your lies,
    when you tried to avoid my eyes.

I have long forgotten the warmth of your embrace
    at the first crack of my voice,
    at the first lapse in my poise,
    at the first pride in my choice.

I have long forgotten the fact that is your existence
    as your simple knocks on my room descended,
    as your simple presence has ended,
    as your simple response remains suspended.
