They asked me whether or not she could still hear... So I held my phone patiently against a dying woman's ear...
I close my eyes and try to picture everything that happened in those moments... But time has already begun to blur the details... Swiftly and without condolence.
I almost forgot you until I remembered... You can't be forgotten... Only briefly surrendered.
Sometimes I like to remember the times with you I know we never had...
I as read my books you come across my mind... Causing words to blur and stories to become insignificant. And soon I'm left lost in the pages... Focusing solely on you.
I can see you fading away in my rearview mirror... With dead leaves and empty dreams swirling at your feet. And as I grip the steering wheel I can only wonder... Is this the last lonely image of you I'll forever hate to keep?
Sometimes it seems as if the past is still present. I can see that everything is over... But still feel like nothing has ended.
I keep wondering... Did you somehow complete me like some incongruent puzzle? Or did I solve myself after you left me alone to struggle?
Sometimes I feel like an undertowhas swept me up. Forcibly suffocating, pulling, and dragging me so much farther out than I thought I'd ever be able to go...
Five minutes pass and a hundred moments run through my mind. And when I try to hit fast-forward... I click the damn rewind.
