a craving for seclusion

I've been breaking hearts for far too long

And now I've broken my own

I will voluntarily enter solitary

And leave my life alone

I don't want to fix it,

I want to slip into nothingness

And take comfort in the empty space

Sew my lips shut and seal my doors

Never again show my face

My brain works too fast anyways

But it just looks like stupidity

I'm a slow, stupid, neat freak who can't decide

How to govern my thoughts without rigidity

Maybe I can carve my heart out and sew it into a rock

And drop that rock into deep water

Perhaps then I will smile knowing I've sent my soul to the slaughter.
