Immunity

Lipgloss lost and found
Murmur biscuits out loud while half-asleep
Feel the phantom buzz of my phone
Hopeful

You keep yourself occupied
To forget about the mirror that night

A woman told me
She would forgive and never forget
Which shocked me as I expected opposite
Even now, neither matters anymore
Building blocks that children left scattered
On the monochrome floor

Many moons came and went
Still two tenets remain

That it happened
And is thus not forgotten

That it stays with me
A malady I dare not heal
