I must mold my mind into these corresponding shapes
like window pieces on the ground
as the sky outside has turned to numbers
and shadows soldiers wait.

Tick tock

It all falls steadily into place one by one
only the enigmatic smile and
Kamikaze madness creeps into my remaining eye.

Tick tock

You'll never have a moment's peace
I'll come at you with all the sanity I have left

Tick tock

You don't tell me how to die.
