Full Text

The colors, they won't stop.
Bright, beautiful colors
Flashing, expanding, piercing
Red, green, blue
An endless
Of meaningless

The noise, it won't stop.
Violent, grating waveforms
Squeaking, screeching, piercing
Sine, cosine, tangent
    Like playing a chalkboard on a turntable
        Like playing a vinyl on a pizza crust
An endless
Of meaningless

Load Me


This section contains speculation for Doki Doki Literature Club! and should not be taken as fact.

Some have interpreted this poem to represent how it feels for the game to be closed as described by Monika in Act 3. Red, green, and blue are the three primary colors of light, frequently used in computer imagery to represent color. Sine, cosine, and tangent are references to how a computer generates sound; a sine wave is the simplest form of a pure note, and more complex sounds are generated out of the addition of many, many waveforms on top of one another. The title "Save Me" and the final line "Load Me" are thought to represent the time period between when the player saves and quits the game and when they open and loads the game.


  • Before the v1.1.1 update, "cacophony" was misspelled as "cacophany".
