Back-pedaling into the black But I can still make out the figures That will threaten my well-being The wind will rise and fall But never sway from side to side Progression halted Encapsulating the fluid weave of death Like a garden that contains all of its arrested offspring We're afraid to force our legs to break free from the earth And take the first step towards our insecurity Sleep away your selfishness Slip into collapse A still-like state of disregard From which you can't fall back You never fully moved me I've been embedded in the dust And my mind has been ravaged by war Pray for farewell as if I was yours to lose I would love to love you, if you were someone else So forgive me for being unresponsive I'm sure it's hard to train your ears To hear me crying out for help With my lips sewn shut by the stitches of my own indecision So I'll speak in whispers to permit my throat relief I bite my tongue Fill my mouth with blood And swallow enough to kill me Before I'm forced to lose more sleep So I'll speak in whispers to permit my throat relief I bite my tongue Fill my mouth with blood And swallow enough to kill me I would love to love you If you were someone else Am I fit to walk alone again Or will you save me from myself? Breathe life into me Be all that I can see Or carry on without me And just know I wished you well
