Untitled

I read their little infinity
And I saw a constellation of stars
But I never asked for life to fall apart
I’ve seen your cruel joke
Play your hand their strings
Pick and chose who to take
Hammer for my heart to break
My face is a small mold
Melting when I get home
You take everyone I seem to touch
Because one wasn’t enough
I prayed up above
But you disconnected my prayers
So you could reside
In your pill forsaken layers
So get out of my house
And get out of my family
You were uninvited
And it’s not time to take me
