Knot of Normality - March 17, 2012

Hung by ropes of tension;

That're pulled so tight.

I'm suffocating, faking,

 

That I'll be all right.

 

I've got this knot,

Tied around my throat.

The knot of normality;

Secretly making me choke.

 

Pretended it wasn't there,

And that I didn't care,

I clearly didn't know,

The pain I couldn't show.

 

Each person pulling tighter,

On this rope so taut,

I cannot help the location,

In this knot I've been caught.

 

Ropes of everyone different,

Of people not listening,

Tie the knot of normality;

My blood so glistening.
