Lost Love

I've lost my love for you,

forgotten your name

among so many others.

Are you worth remembering?

Do you matter at all

any more?

Will you ever return,

re-emerge like hibernator?

Are you buried forever underground?

Could it be your disappearance

isn't even noticed

and no tears shed for you?

The good of you fallen,

sieved like flour and icing sugar,

leaving only useless lumps?

Your name a melted hailstone,

gone from sight,


Pray surface in your own time,

lost love loved again

even if you've forgotten my old name.
