what i’m writing instead of sleeping

you ever wonder
in a moment
of mistaken kindness
what would happen
if you
let you
be
you
say you are
living
transparently out loud
or some shit
but
we all have
an off-key chorus
of voices
calling the plays
from the sidelines
sometimes
you can have a lot of missteps
in a race
you never wanted to run
still don’t
know why
you caaaaaan’t
always geeeet
what
you want
me
i know
we’re supposed to feel
bad
i guess
when people say
you think you’re better than
well
fuck
i sure as hell do
you know
i read
that
it takes
over two hundred muscles
to open
your eyes
sadly I don’t
control any of them
