"It's better to burn out than to fade away..." -Kurt Cobain

You are my sister forever I know,
But how long does forever last?
Distance between us is driving us apart,
And forever is exceeded by a few hours.
The pictures on the wall show not a sister,
But a stranger I no longer know.
Who are you?
You're going somewhere I can't.
I won't let myself.
A bird cannot breathe underwater,
And I fear you are the fish of us.
How can you be so far away,
But the pain from you be so close?
Memories are not enough,
And you're too far away.
I can't remember you anymore.

this is about a good friend of mine who moved away and we've begun to drift away I feel.

Boy, when you're dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery.  People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody. ~J.D. Salinger,The Catcher in the Rye,
