Hateful words, snap and clatter…
back up, joyous, idle chatter.
Forgive me, love me, help me,
I just need to sleep, to lie
and rest.

Leave me alone, please come back,
up, down, stacked and stacked,
I’m smothered. I’m lonely.
I’m free, I’m bound.
I’m lost.

Lash out like whips,
get out of my way.
Hold me up, please stay.
Please stay
with me no matter what.

Near or far be with me,
Love me more when I am harsh.
I am hurting,
I am broken,
I am human.
