Alexandria

We know more now
than we did then
but what we know
is different and is
not necessarily better.

There is an
inexplicable ache
deep in my gut
that has always
been a part of me.

The empty space where
all the things I forgot
used to hold purchase.

All I can do is hope
that the things I learn
from now on will
move me forward
and not back.

And that I can ignore
the sensation of
sudden remembrance
that washes over me
sometimes when your
fingers entwine mine.
