out of my head

i’m so sick of me
i’m so tired
of always being in my head
i want out
not to be someone else
just not to be
for a little while
or ever…
but i’m so rooted
in who i am
my shortcomings & downfalls
crawling about
the labyrinths of my mind
to myself
my shortcomings & downfalls
this is who i am
in my head
out of my head.
