if you could delete every single bad memory
would you do it?
would you take that leap?
the time you fell in front of your crush... gone
the time that rumor went around the school for a week... gone
the time where you walked into class with your skirt tucked into your tights... gone
would you do it?
would you go to such an extreme?
I wouldn't
forgetting isn't pleasant
trust me, the girl who answered yes and
now can't remember her childhood


My pen is the barrel of a gun. Remind me which side you should be on.

your past makes you who you are today...I could never want it deleted but would try not to dwell on the bad.

I love how you use such simple little examples like rumors and crushes (granted those can be bad) to contrast the horror of what happens in the last few lines. I really really love your writing, great job!

I was going to tell you something profound in reply to your post, but my Top E finger slid too far to the right.

Here's to you and here's to me and should we ever disagree, here's to me!

I might have said yes before Billy and I, but now I wouldn't.

It was just a thought which made them run. It was just an act that killed them.
