Everyone is moving so fast
and I just want to stop
For one second
and go back
the buzz of tires fills my ears
the exhaust is suffocating me
I'm muted by the voices of others
and I just need to stop
press pause
How can I act like everything is okay?
Everything is not okay
I preferred it when I was alone
because at least then
I was 'not okay' by myself
Whispers close in
trapping me
and I just want to get off
I need to get off
