This pen you hold with no regard
This former version of yourself
And with the words you whisper
This could mean the end
You’ll never quite begin

I am the moment that you dread
I am the middle of the night
I am the only noise you hear
Inside your room:
The sound of giving in

One more inch could mean
Losing everything
But I would dare to dream
If I could say to you:
If you only knew

You won’t allow yourself to breathe
You know you’re better on your own
Outside, the sky is turning seasons into years
You know you’ll never be the same
