“I don’t want you to be sad,” he said
But just look at what I can do with sadness…
Every single moment of our lives –
From the most exciting discoveries
To the second when your hearts both
(skip a beat)
At the same time –
Must always have the faintest outline of a teardrop
Because all of those moments
Must start dying slowly
From the instant they are conceived.
The bank of memories only provides copies of the original.
