It’s so unnerving when you realize

you have scripts in your head

written by others in your past

that just keep replaying.


No matter how hard you try

you can’t rewrite them,

they are imprinted on

the framework of your brain.


The negative words continue

repeating in a constant loop,

even though the source

has since moved on.


I wish I could rewrite the dialogue

and make a new ending

that wouldn’t conclude

with me in this seclusion.
