In our personal barricaded taxi,
Keep us locked into truth.
Waiting on those
Who are employed to be concerned,
Yet will never bother
After they milk us for glory.
“Never two without three.”
We should have known
We’d joked too early
Two nights before his fall
That took us all to this place.
We take selfies
To make the waiting game easier.
Refusing to be victimized,
But almost feeling pity
For our former never-comrade.

People say not to believe those who lie for you, but are not those lies a strong enough proof of fate?
We sacrifice so much to preserve you,
losing the line between life and lies.
And we don’t even ask for much. Just that you believe us, who latch on to truth wherever we can.

Those red flags dusted your eyelashes
Shutters flashing open to reveal your fears
I was fine at first
“We all have our insecurities”
And brushed them away with my fingertips
Redefining the very core of me
With their licks and edges
They fought against freedom
Leaving me alone
In the place they had once welcomed me to so proudly
Those brilliant red flags.
