I’m struggling to believe that I’ll be fine. I received every bit of bad news and now I’m being left behind. Suddenly, the doubts rush right to my head. Maybe who I want to trust aren’t really my friends. We were given scripts, are we what we wished? I’ve been compromised before our eyes. I don’t think I’ll be missed. Underneath, deep in my skin I hate feeling like this. I’ve done the math but I’ll crunch the numbers once again. Where did I go wrong? I thought my faults would prove to you that I belong. Where did I go wrong? Soon I’ll be gone. I know I let you down because I’m not who I should be. (…)
I am wrong, you heard right. The nerve to hide my fears and how they’ve made me unwell. I should have said this before now. I’ll say it now. “You were only trying to help.” she hums what she hears, it’s clear she is not following my lead. she’s done listening to me. I scribbled and scrawled. I carved and I clawed all of my scripture on top of her body. It’s there to remind me that the purpose changed when the person changed. it’s strange that I’m still hanging on. learn from my mistakes and I’ll wipe away your slate. a clean canvas is used for second chances. get this over with - I need this off my chest. come down - I’ll slither back to my hole. come down - I will not like this outcome. I cannot calm down. This is not what you’re thinking so don’t blink or you’ll miss it. I try to remember but the pieces don’t quite fit. It’s just getting blurry and I’m closer to thirty then when we first met. I’ll save my regrets, I don’t want to forget the harm that I caused you with the words that I said. Please quickly leave to begin without me like before we first met.
