Before Checking Out On Lane 7

Converted screams to tears

Yelling never helps peace

Body bent on a rusty blue carousel

Head low then high

Searching for answers in thick wild why

Are you sure this is the place you want to stop

Promises forever dropped

Arms wrapping around someone else


I can’t stand it.

I can’t.


Smiling with someone else

In a different bed

Giving someone else head

Been throwing up inside my mouth

Discreetly crying in rain

Pretending I’ll be okay


One number away from the jackpot

A lucky bounce disqualified

Spoiled food you want

A ring lost in the ocean

Million dollar check that bounces

Having to pretend I’ll be okay


I can’t stand it.
