The Low
I am perched but not on a perch
I sit obediently at a desk,
listening to nails on the chalkboard,
listening to the slap of the ruler
My little limbs defend my face
my little voice thinks its screaming
I just want to leave it all behind
and walk with ease away
Feet stagger under my shoulders
days play on repeat before my eyes
I start to cry for the fallen life
thats in this black and white film I'm watching
Rules set themselves around me
and convulsing I feel them wrap around my limbs
restricting and deminsishing my already shrinking self
and all I do it sit obediently at the desk
