I Remember

I remember her turned back as you arrived,

The ex husband walking after her as she turned away,

It reassured me, that it wasn’t just me to end up hurt.

I remember the colour of your eyes change as the memories slipped away,

The frustration of knowing yourself, the reality of the situation.

I remember lost looks, and a saddened face,

I remember the hope that came when you mistook me for another.

The stark reality that in the end, all we have are memories,

Until they too become lost.
