You win.

I won’t press play.

Let’s stay…

Stay paused for I don’t deserve to move forward.

You deserve better…

A better helping hand.

A better system.

Selfish… that I do remain.

Somehow… just somehow,

I don’t feel shame... who’s to blame?

Me. I take it all... with my love.

Alone, isolated, secluded…

Let that be the case,

Not for you but for me.

Trapped. Let me stay, while you be free.

If I remain I’ll be of no good.

So leave me be, stuck at paused

And say you’ve understood.
