How do I unknow something?

There is no surgeon could take this understanding from me,

Carve it out of my head like I'd pray for amnesia,

It's more likely I wont forget until a lifetime of carrying the loss,

Makes Dementia feel like a mercy.

I told you once but I think you lacked the understanding of what I tried to say.

I was unaware at first I was pregnant,

Until one late night I spent bleeding at 19 in a hospital, and I lost the baby.

Of course after all these years I still remember birthday's.

 Your son never got one.
