I strive for compliance but cherish the silence
I’m backed in the corner again
The pen is the stylist shading fine detail
in a portrait created of words

I’m painting a picture, an outline of subtext
each letter a careful placed thought
I scream at this canvas, but there’s no rebuttal
I scream for this silence to break

What will you think of me as thoughts run through these pages
my life’s become an open book
as ink drips from this ballpoint and leaves it’s scares on parchment
The image burned into my mind

And I will take this match with fire I will set you free
my thoughts, my soul released into the air
will you take my burdens, will you feel my wait
or will you fucking simply sit and stair

Can you take this from me, can you take this away from me
I have no direction, but a strong sense of loyalty
My life is in shambles, but I will keep writing
