Appetite for Distraction – Uprooted.



Now remember, now forget:
Thick thatched thoughts crush - mash:
Disconsolate, Alone.

Each torn memory re-
Veals a slippery wound.
Now remember, now forget.

Dripping despair drowning
Each and every breath - 
Disconsolate. Alone.

Screaming hopeless Death howl.
Bound - Branded - Broken.
Now remember, now forget.

Scrabble through the rubble
of the futile future.
Disconsolate. Alone.

Reflect on the struggle
Of withered ragged joy - 
Now remember, now forget.

You and I begin now.
You and I never end.
Disconsolate. Alone.
Now remember. Now forget.
