Amped out inside
I’ll never sleep again
I can’t pretend nothing is wrong
But I will never reply
My neck is broken
For all the feeling I have left
For all the ingredients I forgot
To put in

I speak softly because volume is too much
I scream whispers through clenched teeth
I didn’t drive all this way to see myself
I keep it inside but it’s not really inside
It never really entered my mind
I didn’t calm myself all this time to lose it now

To strike and slink away into the aftermath
Every action displayed for all to see
Like a ninja in white
To speak without thinking of the consequence
Every word a tiny dagger
Caltrops piercing all who innocently pass by
Puncturing all who walk boldly
Did you forget I could fly?
