So many feelings
So many insecurities
Marching like a criminal
To the beat of my own car-crash
Lingering in the fire of defeat
Must I meet your hollow empty friends?
I dare not stay
Take me back
Back to the beginning
Blindly singing to the sun
You nailed my head to the ground
You kept me alive
You became my muse
Until you tightened the noose
And kicked the chair from under me
Leaving me hanging
My heart dangling.
