New Year Confession

In all of poetry
I cannot read the poems of ‘Love and Misadventures’.

Because the first line of acknowledgements
Already has your name in it,
While the rest of the book reminds me of
My time with you.

And I cannot allow myself to look back;
Or be reminded-
I can’t.

Not when I already know
You will not be there
Staring back at me.
