Neglect These Memories



I neglect all I want and neglect all I need

To let memories haunt and let memories feed


I refuse to fight back to keep illusions alive

I defuse my attack to let delusions survive


And for nothing more then a comforting dream

One that leaves me floating up stream


I subject my soul to the torture of regret

Giving up control, never going to forget


But the fact of the matter, this shouldn't be my fate

for there's nothing sadder then to give up at the gate


I will not keep this pain I've been holding so tight

I've been going insane just containing my blight


I'm gonna let go because it hurts to hold on

And just like and snow, One day you'll be gone


I had tried to drink all our memories away

But now that I think, I want them to stay

When I stand at the brink, I'll stop there and say

I did not sink then, I will not today
