Slipped Away
I placed a bag over my head
Trapped my thoughts close to me
Fixated by brethlessness
Transfixed by the control
I was carried back to the darkness
I have been running from
My feet tripped themselves up
And I was lying on the floor
I ripped that plastic bag up
Along with dumping my tears
Accepted that it is over
And walked away
