rewind the tape

Nothing—you don't know nothing about me.  

 So you know just about everything huh.

I really can't hide from you can I?  

No matter how hard I try

Under sheets…tangling masses of white 

Enveloped by loss of feeling

Numb blankets

…masks, pretty perfectly painted masks that cover everything

Lies I'm not lying. 

 Not with you anyway. 

And this is something I've been working on..

Me in progress—paused
