sentiment

it clutters closets and fills up files
it alters judgment
it plays with minds
it tears my eyes
it punches my stomach
it squeezes my heart
it rips me apart

the heck with sentiment

--pause--

yea right

Without sentiment you would be cold and heartless. If your eyes never tear, they will never smile either. If your heart is never broken, it will never be truly whole. If your judgement is not subjective and altered by your sentiments, it will be distant and dispassionate.

keeps me alive? not really. but yes, i cannot escape it. i dont really WANT to anyhow. if i wanted to, i would run away, close up, shut out. but notice the 'yea right'.

esther-

rishi-
