I Told You to Forgive

I Told You To Forgive
Maryam Alatmane


You remember that day

Like its happening right now

Right in front of your eyes

You remember that day

Like a tape rewinding in your head

I told you to forget

To forgive

To make amends

But you ignored me

Because your anger

Was like a burning hole of fire

Eating away at your heart

And the silence between you

Was like a wall

A Dam that could not be moved

Would not be broken

No matter what

Until the day the mirror of silence was shattered

All that was left; the tiny segments of glass

And you were left stung by the words:

I hate you
