Generation of Time


I wish I could erase you from my mind

Forget your existence
I could be free of this pettiness; this worry
Gather every memory of you
Bottle it up and throw it out to sea
You could swim with the fishes, 

In my thoughtless dreams
In a matter of time, you will forget me
When I pass by, on those dark and empty streets
You won’t look twice, as I will be a faded memory
Simply, another faceless stranger
This void, settling deeper into my rib cage
When will I bury you
Rid you of my daily bread
Consuming every memory; every touch
Wishing for a way to erase you
Forget your existence—
In my generation of time
