cannot remember

i woke up
with the imprint
of your perfect
shaped lips
marked on my wrist
yet i cannot remember
your name.
your lipstick
bright and beautiful
stains pale skin
a reminder of
everything
i cannot remember.
but if I trace over
the mark you left
fingertips numb
i swear I can feel
the ghost of a memory
when you pressed
your lips.
i cannot remember your name
but i remember
you.
