Stream of light that travels through a prism,
Bedroom walls awash with color,
When you look back everything is clearer,
Reliance on your sure footing,
Had got you places that you didn't plan on going,
Today is brimming with self-reproach,
It's overflowing and I'm scarring my throat.
I am scared of losing everything I had.
Introverted and taciturn,
I don't remember how I got this way,
Sewed lips with a string of failures,
I'm losing consciousness from the pain,
Its the only way I sleep at night,
Internal fight or flight,
And I don't have the strength to lift a hand,
After shedding every ounce of my skin.
