In the morning check my pulse to see if I woke up
Taste my morning tea in case there's poison in my cup
Last night is a mystery, a crime that no one solved
Before I am a victim I would like one thing resolved

Everybody watches me to see if I'm still fine
All the fans are waiting for the pitch except for mine
Draw back my arm and grip it tight while screaming to hold still
Praying for my mind to throw the ball against my will

Playing my piano in a house without a roof
Hearing how they marvel that I still remain aloof
Forte to glissando to a dissonant reverb
Spinning sonic armor so I'm harder to perturb

Stumbling while I play can turn the keys from white to red
Notes upon the page turn into words that you have said
Hidden from the outside is the melody of me
Dying out unheard as I press down a certain key

I want to watch you cry for me as I lie down to sleep
And yet I'd smother my own breath to never see you weep
How dare you tell me I'm the only reason you have left
Your words of love would only turn my gift into a theft

In the morning take a breath to see if there's still air
Look up from my tea to see if you're still standing there
Last night is a mystery, a crime that no one solved
Before I am a victim I would like one thing resolved

Author's Notes:
A low point; wondering if I'll recover, and wondering if I want to.
