A long time ago
I acquiesced to the notion
That somehow it matters
What I do
What I say
But it is dizzying to contemplate
The devotion it takes
To not shatter upon your altar
Of rules
Of conformity
And I cannot do it
I can't
Bleeding from my mind
I run and fall down
Screaming breathless
And wonder why I bothered
When I am far too far gone
Down the road of no return
Instead of coming back
I'll wait here
And burn
