Poem A Day: Ways to unlove

If I could unpeel you from me,
I’d take a knife to my skin.

If I could dislodge you from my heart,
I’d take a shovel to my chest,

If I could unsee your face,
I’d gouge my eyes with a fork,

If I could disremember your voice,
I’d pierce my eardrums till they bleed,

If I could unforget,
I’d bang my head against wood.

If I could unlove you,
I would.
