All Over Again

I thought it would take me
a thousand mouths
to erase your name,
to rinse my memories of you,
to refill the void
that your absence caused,
like it’s the only thing that could cover up
a horrible, regrettable tattoo
visibly painted all over my being

Turns out,
it only took another mistake
for everything to be renewed –
only to find myself
repeating the cycle all over again
