Select, delete,
Hello pattern
Hello pride
Hello hurt
Hello hollow
Hello how do you overcome that all incasing feeling.
Let's call it a cocoon
Nothing can be gotten
Rid of
Because your brain is the worst hard drive
And it is the least efficient
It never recalls data as it was entered
Don't you wish you had photographed the bad times
Instead of blocking them out
Then maybe justification could be easier
I don't understand how it feels like I'm losing something
When it's already
Simultaneously lost
And saved somewhere else
I'm glad days keep moving
Because otherwise
I would have probably paused time
And never ever moved forward
From anything
And that is no way to live.
