to erase - to make it as if something is never there
maybe what's worse is the act of erasing.
killing is erasing. the erasing of life. but still, there might be a chance for remembrance.
erasing doesn't have to always mean the removing of life. there can still be life while the self is erased.
to erase, obliterate, completely, like it's never there, never exist at all, maybe that's worse than than killing.
worse to whom?
surely not to the one who possesses no more memories of it. but worse to the one who can still remember, the one being erased, if they can still do it, the act of remembering.
wonder is the act of remembering. it creates. maintains. preserves.
