Do You Think that Time Stands Still?
–by becky WTGH
Do you think that time stands still?
Do you think that we are real
Do you know if love is true ?
Why beat me black and blue
With the weight of expectation
Crushing myself, pushing the limit
Make the deadline, be the next sensation
Does it matter if you’re on time–
If there is no time–
And there is no limit?
If time stands still, why am I still
Rushing in it?
I wish I could stop this train of fraught
Pressurized, boiling, curdling intensity
all fucks my brain wraught with blistering propensity for
Little to no effort, little to no sensitivity
If time stands still,
It must’ve gotten lost behind me
I charge ahead, full speed
Into darkness, uncertainty
If time stands still, please,
Don’t wait for me.
I can’t sit still, I need to be seen.
