no more composure
there has to be rage if I dig deep enough
there has to be some
how could it be that when I search there’s none

it comes at me
in a thousand different lights
that all blur in together

I turn away and wait
for it to pass me by
instead of love and hate
I watch from the outside

when I look
a thousand lights
turn into
blinding white

I can’t feel anything

I feel like I’m trying
but I keep forgetting
what it’s like to feel anything that seems real

and so I watch the world from a place
where any light has long since escaped
suspended somewhere between growth and decay

there’s so much more
there is so much more than desolation

I’m still here

that blinding white
is made of more colors
than I could ever ignore

disperse, and let me feel alive
