If you forget how to forget,

You remember it all.

If your past is made crisp,

Its pain will not fall.


Your hopes affixed,

Your fears intact,

No new smiles mixed,

Your joys subtract

Themselves in shame,

Nixed by lame fact.


Bliss ransacked by mem’ries

With too much truth.

The past too clear

For the happy seas.


Don’t ruin my dream.

It’s better touched up

With false joys.

My life would only seem

Empty, full of noise.
