Free Verse: and I forget

hiding my eyes

Free Verse

And I forget

hand in hand we’ve walked
through good times and not
we’ve had our quarrels
we’ve fought,
and each time I say:
“this is the last time!”
and then
you’ll do something
and I forget.

hand in hand we’ve walked
through good times and not
the times that frustration
made me want
to leave and go off,
I say to myself:
“this will be the last time!”
and then
you’ll do something
and I forget.

hand in hand we’ve walked
through good times and not
early mornings reflecting
of all the good we’ve got
and you wake up bad,
I say to myself:
“this has got to stop!”
and then
you’ll do something
and I forget.

hand in hand we’ve walked
through good times and not
moments of tenderness
make me go on
and if in bad times
I say
“this story has got to end”
and right then
you’ll do something
and I forget.
