It's the same thing everyday
you wake up and go through routine
someone asks how you are
and you reply with fine

you go to school, to work
have conversations you won't remember
smile at those who smile at you
give the occasional wave to an old friend

but at night, you lie awake
a sea of thoughts in your mind
you wonder why someone left
or why you don't like what you see in the mirror
and you're hopelessly drowning
in remembering and forgetting
and pretending like you don't care at all
