Oh, darling, we fucked up
You told me
Tomorrow I will start forgetting you
I’m telling you
I look at the mirror and
Everyone of them says I don’t exist anymore.

Bad-quality selfies and dozen of letters, 11 of which have never been sent. I am talking to him but he never hears. I’m packing the letters, putting them on a shelf and travelling through time: in twelve years, me convincing myself I made it up; me convincing myself I don’t need back what he stole from me.
You’re never getting back what you’re giving, remember about those holes, cripple.
I was waiting summer for so long, but sun rays are falling on my shoulders as burns.

О, любовь моя, все полетело к черту
Ты говоришь мне
Завтра я начну забывать тебя
Я говорю тебе
Тем временем
Я смотрю в зеркало и
Каждый из них говорит, что я не существую больше.

Автопортреты плохого качества и дюжина писем, 11 из которых никогда не были отправлены. Я говорю с ним, но он никогда не слышит. Я упаковываю письма, кладу их на полку и путешествую сквозь время: через 12 лет я, убеждающая себя, что все это – выдумка; я, убеждающая себя, что мне не нужно обратно то, что он украл у меня.
Ты никогда не получаешь назад то, что отдаешь. Помни об этих дырах, калека.
Я ждала лет слишком долго, а солнечные лучи ожогами падают мне на плечи.
