Cut through all that chrysalis you would never confess for them, all those “maybes” and “if only’s” that you couldn’t stop collecting.
Read your needle twitch, your ‘tetanus shot’, your target practice therapy.
Tried to put a pin in each excuse like it was a missing specimen, like the pack of them would be extinct by the end of the night.
Memories are trapped using funnels, pitfalls, malaise netting, bottleneck interceptions and other types of passive traps, some of which are baited with small bits of sensation (such as a wish, when formed, or a want, once found).
Want (as a general preference) versus want (as a statement of an action). Two very different definitions for the same word.
Yes, fine, tell them all that bullshit again. You had a life before this. Take it.
Do I need to make this simpler? Could I? Jillison, do you really think it matters who was willing or when? Another consequence of covering your tracks in cracks of glass, I could you see up close and all too clearly.
Remember who you were before? Temporary pins and proper needles, I wish I didn’t.
Jillison, do you still want me to honest? You never trusted me, I never trusted you.
Cut you open like a child from a cocoon, I knew you would be the easiest to kill.
