You Remember?

Do you remember? I remember.

The bitter sting of an adult’s hand

A punishment for a crime you had no concept of

You remember

The things that once were delicious somehow now taste wrong

Like a betrayal of what once was.

I remember

Loneliness

The wanting of wanting

The need to be a part of something

But never able to

Do you remember? Tears?

A sadness indescribable yet real

Something deep within you breaking

And not knowing why.

 

You and I both remember, mistakes

The pain that comes from embarrassment, humiliation, and shame.

A dropped glass, the wrong words spoken, or even no action at all
