El fin, or something like it
In between dead and illusions.
No impossible solutions but,
just acceptance and anxiety ridden thoughts of
how much of a failure I can be.
Oh, it's not about me?
I mean granted I thought us involved me as well pero pues, ok?
Hey, ¿sabes qué?
Sé que estas con el rabo entre las patas.
A leguas se nota que algo de remordimiento te está comiendo la lengua.
But fuck it.
Because, somehow it is not about me, but it is my fault?
Even though I wasn’t the one.
