The air is stagnant, suffocating my breath
A bitterness halos
Sickness invades the mind, are we lost?
Gravity is the enemy, catching every fall
Nothing satisfies, a vessel empty to be used
It’s a pity we’re not as powerful as we dream
Human-ness betrays the robotic functions of the day
Another tool to be used and then thrown away
To keep my mouth shut and to stare straight ahead, this is my sanction
The twisted thoughts ball up as they’re left unsaid
Afraid to hurt, afraid to honestly portray
I want to be alone when I come undone
There is no one to pacify these feelings in my soul
My body is mine, my mind is out of control
To appease all, to lose a sense of self
I can appreciate their warmth but I can’t handle their guilt
Mirror on the wall of faded glories
Who do you subjectify this evening?
Do their haunts let you forget yours?
Is it because she’s the one they think of?
Or, do they attack the weak?
I am grateful that I had parents who raised me to question everything. ❤
