why is it still spring by christopher franko

As time burns away goodbye
 like the glow from fireflies
 this urge still hurts to pacify
 those words that just passed us by


 as the absconding memories relapse my mind
 back into this cataclysm i climb
 only to tragically back slide
 into the last battle cry of my outer life


 internally i burn like the embers of a furnace
 hurting, hurting, hurti
 to unremember that first kiss
 externally i shine like the embers of a person
 burning burning burning
into a regular person slowly


by Christopher.Franko
and the WORD OF THE DAY is....

abscond

  ab-SKOND  , intransitive verb;

1.
To depart secretly; to steal away and hide oneself -- used especially of persons who withdraw toavoid arrest or prosecution.

  6. I like the negative use of verbs; e.g. Unremember.

    It takes away from the drone and adds personally to piece.
