Dangling

I will dangle from a thread,

Before I let go of you;

You will have to pick me off,

Say, "fuck off",

And flick me away.

 

Make sure I'm long in the distance;

See that it's dark,

Cold,

Dank.

Do not care.

Just walk away;

Leave me to stumble 

Crawl,

Fight,

My way to the light.

 

When I call your name,

Please be silent.

Do not call out to me,

Even if it's kind of you to guide me.

Maybe I'll get lost,

Or someone will find me along the way,

And take a left,

When I ask to go right;

 

So, when I get to where I need to be,

Maybe you will be nothing to me.

That is the only way to get rid of me
