All in

I want out

Of my mind

Perhaps then I wouldn’t understand

Or feel the way that I do

As dictated by my heart

So ready to bleed

For the strangest of faces

Frozen by madness

I need an explanation for having none

I need a justification for why I care so much

Pretending to be affected by the poison

And the poisoned

When I have grown impervious and cold

And it has nothing to do with the weather –

I don’t want to save humanity

I don’t even want to save you

And you, I love.
