tomorrow comes with memories by Oppong Clifford Benjamin

time flies with me
when i’m falling out of love
i think i can forgive her
and forget about it all
but when tomorrow comes
the memories come with it

if i’m not living
i’m searching for size 39
for high pixel camera phones
i’m searching for ways
to tell my lover
her happiness is my responsibility
but she chooses to be another’s responsibility.
it hurts how i
can be everywhere
except her heart.
