cloud songs

                Memory
                or malfunction?
      Incidents of that day
    stain the threshold of any
       further relationship.
  How can you hold the power
through all these years
          even in absentia?
              Sins of omission
     won’t go away
by pretending it didn’t happen.
          Remind me again
          soon, even now,
         what it meant
         then. When did
                                   it stop?
