The Quote: “Things have been so crazy and hectic, I should’ve gotten back by now” – Drake from his song ‘Karaoke’
All around me I hear noises of despair,
distress, and people saying they can’t take the stress.
I’ve been trapped inside my mind’s maze
where all of my memories stay
on repeat, showing me the previous days.
Their voices are blasts from the past
as I sit here daydreaming of my mistakes…
wondering what I did wrong
as the radio plays all of our favorite songs.
Each track sending goosebumps
along my back to where I feel choked up
emotions gripping me by the jugular
yelling words that are secular…
My mind the ransom.
I can’t even begin to fathom
how I will repair my reality
as I pull up to your driveway that holds my sanity.
