Predicament

March 30th, 2011

My eyes closed tight
I cannot see
It’s not my responsibility
You made this mess
You clean it too
There’s no way of avoiding you
You look at me
Like I’m a disgrace
It’s written all across your face
Just close my eyes
I cannot see
You cannot blame this all on me
I was so young
So naive
It was not my fault you wanted to leave

The words are flowing with no end
Unparalleled to the thoughts in my head
Faster than I can process the feelings
Uncertain when I unraveled to the last thread

My thoughts are louder than my own voice
Forcing words together that don’t want to fit
I can’t find a reason or time to escape
I can’t fix this mess when I never learned to knit
