Alone At Night - Poem by The White Rabbit

There was something painfully familiar about the situation
(There’s some great awakening waiting just up ahead)
There’s a semi thought emotion holding you there

With writhing pain
And dying love

You hold fast to your self-respect
(Your dignity)

But if that meant you would leave me
Then you would
It’s not fair
It hurts too much
It kills before your dead

You run for miles without losing your breath
Yet when I finally get to you

You’re already dead

Did you want this future?

Did you wake up one morning thinking
“I’m going to destroy myself today
I’ll be built up just fine
To fit their mold
Fit their minds eye.”

Did you really think you wouldn’t change?
(Did you really believe that you would always love me?)

Because when you changed, you left me behind

You left me cold and alone at night
