My days have been colored with your absence.
I want to get over you and banish your thoughts.
I want to tend to my everyday chores,
To feel my solitude, to write a poem,
Without thinking even once about you.

So I’ve tried to keep you out of my thoughts:
The color of your eyes, your smile, your easy grace;
The sand in beaches I have once been to
Still shows up in all my well-laundered clothes.
How shall I shake off the sand of your thoughts?
