Wasteland
You make forgetting look so easy.
Title text: You make forgetting look so easy.

Explanation

If you can address this issue, please edit the page! Thanks.

The opening lines of the comic misleads the reader into thinking that Cueball is remembering his partner fondly. The final two lines of the comic instead reveals that Cueball is trying to forget his ex-partner. He states that he has not managed to forget his partner, and so resolves to continue walking to distance himself from them. The title text implies that his (ex-)partner has already forgotten him.

Transcript

[Cueball is walking through a wasteland talking to himself.]
I am alone in this wasteland, a thousand miles from you.
But I haven't forgotten the feel of your skin, your mischievous smile.
You'd think a thousand miles would be enough.
I guess I'll keep walking.

Discussion

Isn't the meaning of the title text that it's so difficult to forget her that forgetting anything else is easy in comparison? -- Bonob (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Possibly? Or maybe she is the one who forgot that he existed in a heartbeat, making forgetting someone "look so easy"Viperzer0 (talk) 18:02, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

The headline "Wasteland" may also refer to the state of the life of the speaker, wasting away. Mountain Hikes (talk) 04:30, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
