Deceiving Memories: Wonderwall by Oasis—Day Twenty-Four of NaPoWriMo 2022 

“I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now.”

and somehow, the loop is consistent,

between my belief and knowing—

Were you there, or did I cease your existence?

for I cared too much and loved so tough,

only to be told I was just never enough.


“There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how.”

maybe I was happy being around you,

or the idea of affection that I lived without;

maybe my standards were far too low,

because there was never sunshine on days my heart chose to snow.


“Today was gonna be the day, but they’ll never throw it back to you

And by now, you should’ve somehow realized what you’re not to do.”

How long did I stay? Was it always this way?

Or did I stick stars on the window wishing they would shine just as bright?

Or were we just never true?


“I said maybe; You’re gonna be the one that saves me,

And after all, You’re my Wonderwall”

oh, deceiving memories hell is all you knew,

you made me believe those dreams, so few—

all I had was an imaginary friend,

Never did come and save me from me,

all you were to me as you

Were to Oasis, my Wonderwall.
