Forgot some more

Avatar Author: Mystique Read Bio

I forgot how to worry,
and never ran out of happiness.
I forgot how to argue,
and everything around was quiet.

I forgot life is unfair,
and made every moment worth living.
I forgot the word revenge,
and enemies ceased to exist.

I forgot dreams are’nt real,
and lived in blissful fiction.
I forgot how to complain,
and dissatisfaction vanished.

I forgot that I’m human,
and work finished in a jiffy.
I forgot that I’m a slave,
and masters never lasted.

I forgot to have expectations,
and life became numb.
I forgot feelings are real,
and oceans never flowed.

I forgot how to breathe,
and life became heavenly.

    this is nice, I like the last line because it reminds me of how sometimes I need to “remember to breathe” except that’s like the opposite lol

    I am not worthy (I am bowing to you) Good work, I also liked the prequel.

    Your sequel fits, but it’s totally and completely you: the phrasing, the story it told, all new and you baby! It started out with depicting desirable things, and shifted to an ignorance so complete that it stripped the meaning of living away.
