carrying on

here i am. i’m locked inside this memory that denies to leave. it’s inside my skull, some where deep, some where unimaginable. it’s like a rusted zipper on an old abandon coat. you feel that urge to enclose your body, but the rusted zipper is too weak to attach to the small teeth that’s surrounding it. it’s only choice is to go up or to go down, but memories are much comparable. they tend to linger, like a bee slowly dying in your sugary soft drink. it’s not a bad memory, not at all. it’s like a twitch in your finger, a step to your walk, a color in your hair. it sets your mind on one thing, and erases the rest.

“can’t you feel it? aren’t you concerned?”
questions being thrown at me, left and right. when something’s on my mind, it takes my concentration. it almost feels as if i’m learning right from wrong, or learning how to ride a bike. it’s new to me, like a path i’d never walked down before, or even ever knew existed.

“stay as long as you please, i’m starting to not mind.”
i’m telling this memory to stay calm, stay put, but most of all, stay wide open. i want the world to see it, see my advantage. i want them to notice the smile on my face, or the braid in my hair. i want people to see me, not what’s on the other side.

“you’re asking yourself where this story is taking you, i know.”
it’s a memory, i’m a memory, you’re a memory, your site, your sense, your touch, your voice, your listening. it’s all new, right?

“get out of my head, please?”
it’s still denying to leave, even though i’m secretly comfortable with it. i feel it doing damage by doing no damage at all. it makes no sense to me, but i can live with that. carrying on…
