External World

by Helen Paradise




You speak to me incisively
It's piercing
And when you draw back the other way
You come out clean
I don't feel how much has changed
Until later
But you spoke a chasm into being
Leaving me confined

Tell me are you holding on to trouble?
Tucked away but still it waits for us
I wished for it all
Visceral
But you didn't demand all too much

No external world

I turn to you relentlessly
A witness
Surveying each choice I make
And every wreck
I wish I could act privately
Keep secrets
And stay on the straight and narrow
For the few watching

Tell me are you holding on to trouble?
Tucked away but still it waits for us
I wished for it all
Remorseful
And I know I can demand too much

No external world

Come to me
All alone 'cause I'm lonely
Come to me
All alone when I'm lonely
Come to me
All alone 'cause I'm lonely
Come to me
All alone 'cause I'm lonely
