I’ll wash myself away. Slip slowly, slowly down the drain. Down into blackness now. No sweet talk or “I’m sorry’s.” Don’t tell me I’m guilty. Down into blackness now. It’s frozen and empty. Lights fading, don’t help me. And I know the memories will decompose like the branches we were taught to follow. Turn blind eyes to truth again. When you speak in the mirror to a heartbeat that stalks at the thought of an ending. Sleep to dream, remember me. Sunsets and power lines. Waves crashing on campsites. The film’s exposed, it’s fading now. Sunsets and power lines. Waves crashing on campsites. There’s nothing left to look back on.
