Tell me about the people you drowned in the well, how they’re all the memories you try to lock away daily. Tell me about your lover holding your head in the water, saying ‘I love you,’ despite knowing that those are the only words that will ever scare you away.
The pattern of your life goes like this: you build a home and it burns away and so you try to follow but even the flames don’t want you. You crawl into someone’s skin and they’re so scared of love they spit you back out again, and so you wear their fear like a bridal veil.
The memories you drowned (one after the other, all staring at you with dead eyes as they sunk under the water) watch you as if you are an unfinished story. Your lovers stand in a line by the wall, their faces a haunting you can never forget.
Tell me about how no one looks at you like art so you have learnt to treat yourself like a masterpiece. This is the pattern of your life: love / lose / love / lose / love / love / love.
