Diseases

If feelings were faucets
On and off at your will.
If memories were a disease
Would you swallow the pill?
If being you could mean
I could undo the I,
The world would be a metaphor
An escapist's sty.

  1. sometimes the dream of you
    is better than the realities of I
    sometimes memories can be burdens
    you can't lose as much as you try
    sometimes an escape is enticing
    almost a necessity of survival
    sometimes forgetting the identity
    is the only way to life's revival

  2. Not very good at commenting on poetry, but that bit about feelings being faucets brought to mind that silly faucets ad.

  4. That ad was the first thing that came to my mind. It's funny in its own, 11-yr old way, but I like that groom in the ad: "Shit. Wife's bratty brother *swipe*...On with the tears"
