Bones rattling

It's just two words

Why are they so hard to spit out?

Skin dripping

Isn't this what you've been wanting?

Haven't you wanted to tell them?

Mind reeling

Their expectant looks are daggers

Do they already know?

Heart racing

Oh, God, what if they hate you?

What if they already hate you?

Sight blurring

You can't bring yourself to say it

Your mind switches tracks
"Never mind"
