Forgetting is to inject insulin into a diabetic

Forgetting is to inject insulin into a diabetic

I feel in my blood the sweetness of pain,

The pain in my blood is swelling for a week.

 

To remember you is to make me unsick

For a while, I uninhale sadness I’ve gained,

Forgetting is to inject insulin into a diabetic.

 

I smell sugar in my urine, very realistic,

That I taste fear to battle only to be slain

The pain in my blood is swelling for a week.

 

Every memento is warmth when it’s bleak

Like a fireplace for someone insane,

Forgetting is to inject insulin into a diabetic.

 

The only time I am okay is when I lick

Lollipops and candies every time it rains;

The pain in my blood is swelling for a week.

 

The moments I place in jars, I could not speak

For the only moments in jars I place are plain,

Forgetting is to inject insulin into a diabetic

The pain in my blood is swelling for a week.
