Empath In flames

Rookie (29.08.1985 / Australia)

? ? ? Where am I? ? ?

Fragmented and distorted….
The image I proclaim is only as strong
as your power to remember me.
As lighting strikes, quick likeness of me.
Rapidly fades away....

Where am I?
I can only replay neurotic counterfeit memories.
I've manifested to immobile my mind.
Only I know they don't exist……
You weren't that kind….
You weren't that loving,

I want to remember,
The real reason why I'm thinking of you.
And not of the others that respected me.
The ones that cared…
A conjunction of my thoughts….
In parts I can only just conjure up.
Where am I?
How do I exist?
And yet can not see my reflected image?
How do I see the blackness that surrounds me?
Why is it that. I can only remember you?
The gratifying feeling I have,
To have known you….
To want to die for you? …

Am I dead?
Or asleep in a never ending loop.
Is there a difference?

I can't be dead.
I can feel my heart beating…..
Louder as I think,
Stronger as I feel.
Where am I?
Where am I…….

    Wow man, i feel like i could've written this. Both our thoughts and writing styles are very similar. It's amazing how we always want the girsl we can never get and the girls we can get we never want. (Report) Reply
