I don’t need a mnemonic device to remember you
You’re literally etched into the stone of my being
I couldn’t get rid of you if I tried
And believe me, I have, with all my might
Tried. To. Forget. You.
No priest could exorcise you from my soul
Nor surgeon excise you from my spirit
We are inextricably linked, now, forever
I have learned to grow around you
Like a tree around a stone.
