i want to be a monster a
master of worlds unexplored
i want to be a survivor
a living, breathing, example
how not to be
who not to be
here and now and at every impasse
i want to be a melody that sneaks into minds
living there and repeating myself over and over
but always forgotten
it's better that way
you can't miss what you can't remember
when it's gone, because i'll be gone
and i know it
so hold my hand while it's still here
and maybe i'll stay another hour
if i'm precious to you,
tell me
don't let me die trying
