The name of the author is the first to go
followed obediently by the title, the plot,
the heartbreaking conclusion, the entire novel
which suddenly becomes one you have never read,
never even heard of,

as if, one by one, the memories you used to harbor
decided to retire to the southern hemisphere of the brain,
to a little fishing village where there are no phones.

Long ago you kissed the names of the nine Muses goodbye
and watched the quadratic equation pack its bag,
and even now as you memorize the order of the planets,

something else is slipping away, a state flower perhaps,
the address of an uncle, the capital of Paraguay.

Whatever it is you are struggling to remember,
it is not poised on the tip of your tongue,
not even lurking in some obscure corner of your spleen.

It has floated away down a dark mythological river
whose name begins with an L as far as you can recall,
well on your own way to oblivion where you will join those
who have even forgotten how to swim and how to ride a bicycle.

No wonder you rise in the middle of the night
to look up the date of a famous battle in a book on war.
No wonder the moon in the window seems to have drifted
out of a love poem that you used to know by heart.

Billy Collins, “Forgetfulness” (via pigmenting)

Do you know why she’s smiling?
Because of him. He’s holding her tight even in he’s sleep. It doesn’t mean that he’s possessive on her or something, it’s an indication that even in his sleep, it’s her that’s running on his mind. He just wants her to be always on his side. He just wants her to be always close to her. He just wants her to be the reason for his good sleep and for the joy he’ll feel when he wakes up.
She loves it when he makes her feel those things. She loves it when he’ got a little overprotective on her. She loves it when he makes her feel like he doesn’t want to let him go. She loves it when he’s clothing her with his love and care. She loves being wrapped up inside his love and affection. She loves being the center of his attention.
She’s smiling because she couldn’t ask for more. She’s smiling because she’s at her happiest. She’s smiling because she’s confident that he’s that perfect guy for her. She’s smiling because she’s with him. And being with that someone you love is enough reason for you to smile.
