Title: Rabbit Hole

Rating: PG


You fell down the rabbit hole, chasing a fantasy.

I haven't been what you want for a while.

You seek adventure and call me complacent behind my back.

I can't hear your words, you think, and smile.

-

I weave stories on the night air, play movies on my eyelids.

I'm searching for something you can no longer give.

You want a wild one, someone with sparks.

I just want to rest and follow my dreams to their end.

-

She's a beautiful girl, the one you see on the side.

She's funny and kind, but sometimes her wit cuts sharp.

She has edges and a dark side—and you like that.

You were never on the receiving end of my temper, though—

So can I really blame you for the fact that you don't know?

-

Of course I can.

You never looked, not once; did you just tire of me?

You never looked, not once, content to stride away from me.

You never looked, and now you've found her, that girl who's not me.

-

You fell down the rabbit hole, chasing a fantasy,

Rushing after something you think you want.

I'm too dull, lacking edge and sparks, not dangerous enough for you.

Not cold enough for you.

Not… something enough for you.

-

I wish you happiness.

I don't care enough anymore to be bitter, or hurt.

Leave me to my dreams; run off with yours.

You'll learn.
