Stop

You’re still shining just as bright offering me an escape from this confusing muddy night but back is only another empty day and… Stop

I am lost again but that does not mean I want you to help me I would rather be alone that let you think you can atone by leading me back to the world of pink crayons and plastic headbands and button-up coats and…

Stop

No I left that plane of reality by my own proximity Rock paper scissors shoot doesn’t matter what I choose the situation is lose lose lose and so I run and run and…

Stop

Now I’m not saying that it’s all your fault that I got my directions wrong You’re still shining just as bright offering me an escape from this confusing muddy night but back is only another empty day and…

Stop

I can’t return don’t you see that place where repudiation is the norm where I tried and tried but could not conform it repulses me I could not hold back my retching anymore and…

Stop.

Your words are black and heavy and they’re weighing down on my head squeezing my skull do you think I would be so easily led away from my path just by our past I’m sorry but you could never understand so…

Stop.
