aftermath

I don't know
if I can
carry you around
 

I try to
shrug you off
but you cling tightly

how do I forget?
let me try
to put you in a song

maybe somebody
will listen
and make it theirs

maybe my piano
will drain
you out of me

maybe you'll become
a melody I will hum
without thinking.

Or maybe you will become
A letter to myself
Tucked away in some corner of my mind.
