Unremembrance Day


Something happened -
at some point in your eyes as
they looked up from your phone
or stared down at your pint.

You wouldn't tell me what,
well not with any words but
I could see it in the way that
even your shadow trembled.

Perhaps it was something I did
or that I didn't say often enough,
more likely the way you made me
ashamed of being me too much.

Welrod whispers hissed amongst
the voices I heard in my head
as I tried to forget watching you
walk away and not looking back.
