“Three Memories of Love” / A Memorable Fancy / Dark and Unexpected Fiction #369

[“I have dreamed so much of you that you are losing your reality.” – Robert Desnos]

1.    I don’t remember falling in love with you. I don’t remember when it happened, or what I was thinking of just then, or what I said before or what you said after, or perhaps nothing at all was said; but somehow it – just was.

2. Every memory of you, every time I think of – us, removes that time from my mind; it’s excised scrape by scrape. I remember that I used to have memories of us. I remember that they were good memories, at the time.

3. I don’t want to recall when you and I made love; already I’ve lost too much. Every time a thought of you comes to mind, it immediately begins to fade. I scribble desperately what I remember, but then it’s gone and only a scrawled note remains. I can’t make out what it says through the smudges and gouges and erasures.
