Forever Broken

Singing along to obscure words
Doing the same routine as done everyday
I see an extra person
I should get out of the way

But the way is not free
I’m trapped in the line
Attempt to get out
But instead I spin out

You think I’d recite prayers
You think I’d try to save my soul
Instead I try to straighten out
I know I’ve failed when I begin to roll

Wishing that black is all I can see
Instead everything collapses around me

Wishing that nothing is all I can hear
But cracks, squeals begin to signify fear

Wanting to get away
Wanting to leave this space
As I shut my eyes
And my arms begin to protect my face

Screams have died
Tires have lost tred
When it all stops
I imagine I’m safe in my bed

Eyes reopen
I know it’s a lie
I never deserved this
Why didn’t I die?

Flashing lights of red and blue
I kick out the way
I come out anew

I might have lived
But part of me died
I’ll always be broken
I’ll always need to hide
