Summer Anxiety

There's sunlight everywhere
Lighting the way to my misery
I feel burned inside and out
The pain of obligation
The brutality of sound


All I want is to hide away
Safe in my cocoon
Silence drawn in around me
My blanket fortress
I seek sanctuary in my own arms


Unstructured chaos is my demise
Guilt is my constant companion
It's not you, it really is me
I'm sorry
But I'm not sorry


I want to be safe from your eyes
Weighted down with judgment
Don't you know it's not my fault?
I'd fix it if I could
But this is me
