The Remains: Tales of a Would Be Nothing
I am the reason you hold your head down when silence overtakes a room.
I am the lesson you learn after having your heart broken.
I am the generosity you show when you get paid.
I am the death of a teacher, and the birth of a savior.
I am the greatest gift to mankind.
I am the biggest disease to humanity.
I am the frayed remains of the memories you burned.
I am the CD in your stereo that is never played.
I am the words that haunt your head.
I am the voices that put you to bed.
I am the lack of ambition you show.
I am the lord you worship late at night.
I am the window you sneak through.
I am not your friend.
I am not your lover.
I am not your family.
I am the remains of everything you left behind.
I am the remains of everything you washed away.
I am the remains of everything and nothing.
