I’m wrapped up
in all that’s spinning around me

Wound tight around me
too tired to sleep

And in my minds eye
I see myself reaching for something

For a place beyond
this version of me

I feel a longing
a silent scream vibrating
and I’m spiraling

Seeking resonance
with something beyond me

I’m eager to
change my mind
change my mind
change my mind

I feel you reaching for me
arms outstretched
waiting for my grip

I can confirm that I’m ready

But in order to get there
I’ll have to admit everything

And I’m afraid to reveal
some parts of me

Is there anywhere left
in between
the me I want to be

And the place

that feels safe
to me?
