- What Matters
This fear came from you.
Fear of forgetting, or being forgotten.
It used to be so easy to move on.
I never realized how much I've molded myself.
I just wanted you to stay with me.
Linger with me.
Stand with me.
I became obsessed with an idea.
In my mind I held on to a perfect picture.
I held on to something nonexistent.
In my mind it was unchangeable.
I took you for granted and ran into anger.
I never thought my perfect picture would break.
But I broke it on my own in selfishness.
I'll regret my words even if you forgive me.
You are what moves me.
I lash out because I am scared.
I am afraid that I care too much,
and you do not care enough.
My fear suppresses my breathing,
the Phobia sets in.
