Misfiring Again

Fuck

I'm doing it again

They. Can't. Read. My. Mind.

I need to use words but they won't come out

They wouldn't understand

So they won't come out

They twist and shout my words

So they won't come out

I have no mental energy
to tell you
I have no mental energy

And I know...
I know you think it's you

something you said
something you did
or didn't say
or do

No

this is on me
my brain's broke
or the circuits need rewiring

this is why I have no friends

they need normal reciprocity
and I leave everyone confused

Words

how they bind
