"Memoria"

I remember a time when I believed happiness was a choice
A time when mind-numbing despair was the exception, not the rule
A foreign time when my eyes were always up and ahead
Instead of on the ceiling on another terrifying, sleepless night
A time when I felt riteous and victimized
When I hadn't seen the worst of life yet, not even by half
A time when being a lost soul was a dark and romantic fantasy
Not a lonely, lusterless reality
I remember a time when I listened to the sad songs and the angry songs
Imagining what it felt like to feel that much
Instead of knowing what it’s like to sob in time to the beat
Your only comfort a voice on a plastic disc
I remember a time when a smile didn’t always feel like a pose
I remember a time when there was truth behind this happy mask
I remember a time before joy became a hollow myth
I remember me
I remember a time when I knew who that was
