Virus by PoetryGrrrl

The reason I compulsively forget
everything you say to me
is so that I won’t become lost
dissecting everything you ever said to me
looking for signs of hope
which I know are not there
yet, find anyways somehow
overload, the cache was too big
purge, restart, repair, reconfigure
trying to erase the data you left
on my heart drive
but you’re like a master boot record virus
I need to flash my BIOS
to get you out of my memory
and I didn’t have time
to back up my system config
before you infected me.
