Gaslit & Running Out of Time.

"I won't push and I won't pull; I'll just stay here like I should."

The page it seems so open, there is too much space
Enough to fill but I’m not full of things to say
As pride is hurled at paper it can’t fill the blank.

I know— it's so obvious.
Enough to solve the problem here.
I know the system isn't working right.
You know as well as I—deserve’s too strong a word to write.

There’s only so much I can do.
The rest, I guess, is up to you.

"What should we do with this," you asked. "Burn it?" The morning after we exchanged vows.
