Treading

November 16th, 2021

I’m running in this race
With no destination
My heart beats off pace
I don’t know which location
But my anxiety eats away
Like I’ve done something wrong
Constant imposter syndrome
When I just want to belong
A burst of inspiration
Is blown out like a flame
But the burning continues
I can still feel the pain
And I can’t help it sometimes
I feel like a burden
Using words against me
Is this life when you’re urban

Write About It

Nothing but Taylor Swift on the radio
What perfect background noise
She knows the words I want to say
But presents with much more poise
Treacherous like my playlist
I picked out these songs
Then I left it all nameless
Because I knew that it was wrong
Invisible strings tugging at my heart
I don’t respond like I should
I only imagined this in my wildest dreams
So I’ll do what Taylor Swift would

Playlist

My words are lost in thoughts
I’m trying to decrypt
They’re jumbled up in code
And I can’t read this script
Twenty-four hours of nameless music
I’ve left it on repeat
To find the message underneath
Am I being indiscreet
The melody is made of letters
In a language I want to know
You can play to the beat of my heart
I’ll be a metronome
Though I am not a muse
I don’t smile like Lana Del Rey
But I can lose myself in the beat
At the moment you press play
I guess my words will never be configured
And maybe this is cliche
But I will listen to the lyrics
Of feelings that I can’t convey
