Anaphora is a literary term for the practice of repeating certain words or phrases at the beginning of multiple clauses or, in the case of a poem, multiple lines.
I remember what led to the gingerbread latte.
I remember the chain draped across your sweater.
I remember wanting to run back but instead moving forward.
I remember taking the most important steps of my life.
I remember aimless walks and never-ending conversation.
I remember the newness and uncertainty of it all.
I remember being terrified and feeling like my heart was going to break
from bursting out of my chest
when it realized that it could synchronize with your love
and actually function without being smashed to smithereens.
