tell it once again, take a big breath now
tell us how it felt when the shadow choked you out did it have a name, and did they ever doubt
that reality may not be what they think it is about
but there was something in the way so heavy on my skin wanting to be let in // the weight of steel mistakes
when the silence hits, it’s an orchestra of screams
yell yourself awake from these graphic , lucid dreams swallow, smoke, and shoot away these visions by all means tell yourself – yet once again – this isn’t what it seems
but there was something in the way so heavy on my tongue wanting to come undone // hate this self: medicate
are you even in there, is anybody home?
your face is scabbed and picked and sunken – hollowed polished stone no one understands this, and no one wants to know
the struggle that you go through is for you to face alone
and there has always been something in the distance there whispering in the back of my mind // to try // to die
there was a time when i could have been myself
but now all i want to be //away from this // away from me
something in the way i – something in the way i – something I could have been that day but there was nothing left of me – nothing left of me, i – nothing left of me, i – nothing left for me to be, just that that day – and there was nothing left of, nothing left of me.
