don’t know what’s going on

my oblivion is a ligament

distracting my thoughts

everything is forgotten

how i tried to remember

how i tried to recall

but everything is vague

even as i poured all

my strength in replaying

things that could let me

evoke memories of us

but nothing in mind

 

all thoughts are gone

nothing is left, nothing remains

    I like these lines…

    how i tried to remember
    how i tried to recall

    It’s like how I try to remember actors in movies I am watching, trying to remember other movies I seen them in. Those are my fun times when watching movies.

    Even the rhythm of this is perfect, like a slow drip, a mind numbed (by pain or circumstance?) trying to function. I really like this; my emotions are with you, here.
