Because I Have No Choice


I have no choice but to turn around

__and run thee other way

You leave no options that I can chose from

I made a mistake leaving a trail to these poems

I don't know what else to say

Maybe I'm just freaking out

__already assuming you'd hike the trail

I am not sorry for anything

__I have wrote to thee

But for the path that takes you

__where you can read

I drift just like a beach ball

I dripped all of my vapor

Just as manic as a driver would be

__sitting in traffic to get over the bridge

I never forgot I am missing you

I just know there are no sirens

Just those flashers

__that I keep seeing

I'm not as empty in the tank

__as I am in my head

But if you wanna fill me with gas

How 'bout flooding my head as well?

Ever put a thought on trial?

I have

I do it ev'ryday

But I'd rather be doing you all day


__why can't we ever get laid?

Am I too horny?

Are you just not into small pee pees?

Whatever the reason is

At least I'm not trying

That would look even worse

And I do

__care what I look like

Deirdre, if rats eat my brain tonight

__where I sleep

____I guess this is goodbye
