Recluse

“A certain recluse, I know not who, once said that no bonds attached him to this life, and the only thing he would regret leaving was the sky”Kenko Yoshida



Slam this one, lock this one, cold, my heart runs around flicking off the switches
Hurry be swift

Quick slam the door, locking the windows,  
hoping you don’t hear me
Hurry be swift
No I wont come out, I’m staying in, quit calling me. 

So many switches,
Hurry be swift
Disconnect, follow that impulse, block the thoughts, 

they lead me out
Hurry be swift
Damn the lights, I forgot, turning off the lights, 

closing the blinds, pull the phone
Hurry be swift
There must never be another, never again, must hide them,  

protecting the remains,
Hurry be swift
Finally dark, all alone, no one knowing where I’ve gone, 

I am the recluse, go away
Hurry be swift
