Bad Memory


I know there was a time
I lived
without your love
but did the morning air
taste so cold?
Did the coffee
so black with bitterness
linger involuntarily on my lips?
Did the sun always shine so strong,
sparkling jewel-drops
against the gray metal hood?
Was I always able
to hear the spider
walk across it’s web?
Was the silk noose
‘round my neck
always this tight?
I know there was a time
when I lived
without your love
but I can’t remember it.
