a heavy mind
Balancing precariously between the truth
And the lies I feed myself

Forgotten, but not alone
Rejected, but not unworthy
labels with a rounded edge
Piercing my heart
Flooding my mind
Inflicting me with false hope
I think I’ll leave you there
In that moment before the clock strikes 12
I’ll leave you there in the fading dark as the world begins anew.

This life is just too beautiful to hold on
To something that won’t hold onto you
