To look better than we are.
To be better than we are.
And those moments that once captured our hearts are captured in time capsules of metal.
Memories that burn and etch themselves into our souls are double taps.
And those which we want to forget?
Delete. Delete. Delete.
There are some things which can’t be. There are some which shouldn’t.
Open your eyes. Look around you.
And maybe, just maybe you’ll remember what it’s like to feel again.
To be brave enough to feel again.
