I feel the stitches pull

I feel myself go numb

I feel myself shut down

I feel the pain

I don’t know how to let go

I don’t know how to separate

You don’t have the same empathy

You are missing a part of the chip

I don’t know how to fix this

It is some cruel twist of fate

That we are the way we are

That I found you too soon or too late

I feel myself rip open

I feel the stitches pull

I need to find a way

To be stronger than fate

I need to pull out my own chip

Before it’s too late
