Memorizing You

At Real Toadswe’re Under an Influence for the Weekend-Mini
I used Memorizing “The Sun Rising” by John Donne, by Billy Collins as my inspiration

i tried to memorize
your eyes
your nose
your mouth

so that when you
were gone
(or maybe i)
the image would remain

i tried to remember
the feel of
your skin
your hair

your breath on my neck
so that when you
went away
(or maybe i)

some sense of you would remain
now here, alone, they fade but
from the next room
from the next town

your image
your touch
are the beats of my heart
that i call love
