How you looked at me.
Your fingers intertwined with mine.
The sound of your heart beating against my cheek.
The way your fingers brushed my tears away.
The happiness you made me feel.
The security I felt in our love.
The hesitation in your voice.
When you lied to me.
The "I'm sorry."
When you told me it was the biggest mistake of your life.
When you told me you just wanted me to be happy.
I almost forgot.
Just like how I almost forgot this loneliness;
This intense sadness and heartache;
This feeling of hopelessness.
Instead, the only thing I forgot
Is why I deserve love and happiness;
Understanding and unity;
A sense of belonging.
I forgot that and instead I want to forget you.
