Of Remembering When

All my texts and all my emails to you start with the words "Do you remember..."

Because I don't see a future in us.

Because all I have of you is the past and the memories that go with.

Because I need to make sense of the past, and everything that was said and was done in it to decide whether I can forgive you, even if I will never see you again.

I need to know in my heart whether to lock you in a box and throw it to the depths of the ocean, or to just put it away at the top shelf of my closet, behind the Porcelain dolls that share and keep my secrets.
