Blinking Lights, Part 2

For Manic Mike

*****

Phone’s going dead
Little red lights blinking
Why wasn’t i made
With little red lights
That will pulse rapidly
As my heart slows
Perhaps I’m defective
I don’t know what’s left to write
Only that I have more to say
I can’t be allowed to fade away
The nights make me weary
Dreams so intense
Tossing and turning
Slowly dying
I need a new battery
I can’t be allowed to fade away
Same shit everyday
I’m sick of monotony
Good for a Monday
Thank God it’s Friday
Have a day
Have any day you choose
Pretending everything’s ok
But, I can’t be allowed to fade away
I need to plug myself in
I can take more damage
I can persevere
I can make peace with myself
With you and you and you
Little red lights blinking
I can’t let my phone fade away
I can’t be cut off from the world just yet
I can’t let myself fade away
