You're Already Gone

but the way the light’s touching your face

the day’s nearly over

shadows in the twilight stretching long

in this moment you come back

you are strong


that glazed over look is fading



but your heart pulls

the strings gag you

drag you

drowning you in emotion

in emotions you thought were gone

it fills you to the brim

the last sliver of courage wavers


you should be strong

could be

but no one chooses to drown

it’s an accident

this is different though

this is a murder

committed by the laughter at lunch

by the whispers in the hall

by the stares as you pass

it’s not your fault

but that doesn’t matter

you’re already gone
