attempting to forget

what has already been set in stone

in both my heart and soul

is an impossible thing

that you are asking of me

I don't want these memories

why can't you just take them away already?

you know my heart is shattered

and my soul is heavy

and . . .

if I could find some way

to just go die in a hole

or in an accident

or even pay some guy

to take my life away

don't you think I would have done it already?
