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.
