I don’t remember

I remember the day

summer, a Tuesday

I remember the place

cool and dark under the bridge

I remember your body

hard against mine, damp and strong

I remember your scent

aftershave and late afternoon exertion

I remember your lips

feverish and insistent with mine

I remember the words

whispered, low and soft and deep

I remember your hair

your eyes your nose your cheek your smile your clothes your promises

but

I don’t remember you

    _in the context of ur ‘gentle’ poem these words acquire a lot of meaning_(in a different context they may have a lot to do with how poetry is viewed )..
    many thanks..
    (ps:why gentle?:-because the voice of the poem is such) qed!(smiley)
