When You Move On

At some point,
you lose track
of how many days
it's been since
you saw him.

Then you know
that's how long
it takes to heal
a broken heart.

You don't link
everything you see
to something
you did with them.

You forget how
their skin felt
and their voice
sounded and
how they smelled.

That's when your heart
begins to mend,
that's when you
start to move on.
