Building Walls  

Subtle twang of

disinterest

ringing in my ears

awake to the sound

of the door closing

goodnight

another night alone,

the bedroom falls

to dark

the carpet stings my

bare knees

scratch at my insides for

sweet release

no, I won’t

I won’t

keep playing house when

there’s no one home

but me

I won’t

keep acting like there’s anything

left to be

fixed

No,

I won’t

cause, for you

the world is one never-ending

family

and I’m sick

So

No, I won’t

I won’t

walk straight

gonna reinforce these walls with

steel bars and ration jars

geode skulls and

skin of my teeth

no, I won’t

I won’t

stack my weight

cause

I’ve finally got this

bony shell on

straight

no, I won’t

I won’t

open the bedroom door

I’m too old for you

anymore

and it’s too bad

all that time spent filling

me up with lies

watching you cry with all that

boredom

in your eyes

and now it’s over and

you’re surprised

so, no

I won’t

No,

it’s not meant to be

I won’t

cause I

won’t be the last

to leave.
