Because I know that I’m wrong.
But I can’t be.
Because the beat in my chest says
I can’t rest until I can sustain myself
until I’m nothingness.
And you hold out the honey
and insist because I
won’t because to admit that I’m
human is failing now I’m screaming
in frustration in the tube station –
This situation is beyond my control.
I want to go home.
