A human on earth.
It doesn't live forever.

A human hurts.
Feels pain in ever which way.
As i sit here.
I drown in memories.
Pressing me. Crushing me. Killing me.

I think to myself.
I wish these memories would fade.
Escape to the sun.
Burn in the fiery pits of Hell.
Vanish into my surroundings.
Disappear through the door and never turn back.


Not as I wish.

A candle, a flame, doesn't burn all day.
A human on earth doesn't live forever.
But memories, they are eternal.
