Weight of Guilt

I'm dreaming of a life
A life that might not exist
But maybe if I dream it enough
I can come close...I can come close..

Is ambition alone enough?
How many countless words discarded
Before settling close enough?

Always a whim away
We tell ourselves
Like a memory gate to yesterday
Regaled by the lies around me.

The illusion that time passes around us
That we'll be fine when the morning comes
A false heartache of the mind
Justified sickness we can ignore.

What is this weight
I can't seem to shake?
Should it have been me
For the ignorance to take?

I'm drowning in days,
Days that never seem to pass.
Treading on in hope
For the moment I look back.

Maybe I can do this?
Seems like I can live this?
With just a memory on my mind.
