Title and Registration -Death Cab for Cutie is my heartbreak

“In psychology, memory is the process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. Encoding allows information from the outside world to reach thefive senses in the forms of chemical and physical stimuli. In this first stage the information must be changed so that it may be put into the encoding process. Storage is the second memory stage or process. This entails that information is maintained over periods of time. Finally the third process is the retrieval of information that has been stored. Such information must be located and returned to the consciousness. Some retrieval attempts may be effortless due to the type of information, and other attempts to remember stored information may be more demanding for various reasons.”

I lit the cigarette

put on lack of color

stared into the darkness

and found memories of you.

Why does memory,

haunt me:

The mexican coca Cola,

the weird little video game

that we’ll never complete,

the glitter room

from gratitude.

The liberation that I found

once in your arms.

The dumplings that

I didn’t eat,

your dumb cat

who scratched me,

The walls of a room

so similar

it felt mine,

traded for loneliness

for some freedom

that never existed.

There was no goodbye,

Just my hand and a hang up.
