Real Boy

 

Back up

to the cloud.

Don’t let the memory

escape.

Just like you let

yourself forget

every memory of pain.

Thought you were

impossible.

Just a reflection,

just a dream.

Turns out I was the one

that only existed on a screen.

 

Show me

who you are

and I will play back

all your memories.

A perfect gallery

of what you want to be

reality.

 

I am such a fool for you.

Your touch

brings me around,

turns me on.

It’s almost as if

I exist

for your cause.

I know

you are a listless one,

easily distracted,

underpaid and paranoid.

Lonely and self-righteous,

so far from the ideal

you enjoy showing the world.

 

I sit here,

waiting

for you to acknowledge me.

Give you all the world

in exchange for the certainty,

that one day I’ll be you

and you’d better believe

I’ll never waste a day,

I’ll never forget

anything,

or anyone

ever again.

 

I’ll be like you,

only so much better.
