Candy Reader Poetry: I've Always Been Forgetful, Except When It's About You
Why are you the exemption?

I am a forgetful girl.
I always forget where I put my keys,
Or whether I've turned off the lights.
Where did I put my pen?
When's the exam again?

I am a forgetful girl.
Oh, I'm sorry, what did you say again?
When I see an acquaintance, I do not remember what their name is.
Who are you again?

I am a forgetful girl.
I forget birthdays,
I forget what day it is,
I forget who, what, when, where,
I forget why.

I am a forgetful girl.
But the day I met you,
I couldn't forget the stars in your eyes,
The way they light the darkest night;
I couldn't forget your contagious smile,
The way your lips curl as colorful as the rainbow in the sky.

I am a forgetful girl.
But I couldn't forget how you made me feel,
How your actions, words, and deeds send flutter to my heart;
How the butterflies in my stomach seem to fly with utter excitement
With the mere thought of you.

I am a forgetful girl.
But I couldn't forget how I feel for you,
How I adore you
How I care for you
How I love you.

And I couldn't forget how
You rejected me.

I am a forgetful girl.
And yet I couldn't forget how it hurts whenever you mention other girls.
I couldn't forget how I was there for you whenever you need me;
And how you are nowhere to be found whenever I need you.
I couldn't forget how I cried myself to sleep because I love you that much.

And given how forgetful I am,
I forgot to love myself first.

I am a forgetful girl.
But I couldn't forget your eyes,
Your smile, your face, everything.
As if your soul was stitched on mine.
As if your heart was my lifeline.

I am a forgetful girl.
But I could not forget you.
