When did I let this vocation of mine?
Which I've worked so hard for
Become the main reason and meaning of me?
When exactly did it happen
That my passion slipped and fell to the ground
Like the seasons passing on an endless tree?
I said I wouldn't forget once I had
I said many things of myself back then
Be it most confident or most arrogantly
A vow is a vow to those who uphold
But what are the words to the man within?
Who forgets himself in his own externalties
I've decided to forget you.
Each stray thought,
Each reminiscence —
Is now just a loveless reminder.
A sentimental stab.
I've decided to forget.
Will sad associations be traded
with meaningless facts.
Hastily covered tears.
Just slow burning
Our dreams of the sea —
