    disappointment
    smacks me on
    the back of my
    skull cap
    every day ~

    as a reminder ...

    and every night
    I go 10 rounds
    boxing with
    disbelief
    (which tricked me into fighting
    in the first place)

    I want to
    un-know you.

    --erase your name
    from the broken
    veins surrounding
    my heart

    --unlearn your
    idio(t)syncracies
    that interrupted
    my entire life

    I want to un-know you ...

    back to the time
    we first (never) met

    so that I can go forward
    and stop spinning inside
    the circles of emOtiOn
    that you represent

    I want to un-know you ...

    --take back my peace-pipe
    and smoke it alone

    I want to un-know you ...

    deleting your collected
    thoughts from mine ~

    those tangible
    memories dissolving
    in artistic tears
    are not suitable
    to shed for the
    one who

    wasn't really there and
    never truly cared
