I tried
Tried so hard
To keep my feet
Off the ground

I cried
Cried so hard
When my toes
Ended up charred
From the jet fuel

It took
To keep me up high
And now
All I wanna do is cry
At this cruel crash

I wanna lash
Carelessly out
Stomp about,
SHOUT
About nothing at all
And everything

Silence the voices
Harshest of critics
Inside my head
Until every single
Thing I dread
Is dead

I sighed
Sighed so loud
I couldn’t cry
And for once
I didn’t ask why
