Did. by Bee (@adhd_bee)

Did they say to tether yourself?

Ball and chain to the earth

Keep your mind from flickering away

To worlds that aren't your own

Why would you want to ground yourself

To a life you don't want to live?

I'd take it with a grain of salt.

Maladaptive daydreaming never killed anyone

Grab the pliers, cut the wires

Dive into the mystery of the world

The sky, the stars

The water, the deep

it calls to you.

Did they watch you sink?

Ball and chain to the earth

Drags you to the depths of the sea

The comforting weight tempts you down

Did they watch you drown?

Blinding, burning star

Scorch marks of wax

The struggle, the bubbling gasp

I'd take it with a grain of salt

Wings of wax or

Alluring reflection

Either way, you have lost in their eyes.

Did they remember you for who you were?

For what you stood for and believed in

Or will they mourn for your ignorance,

Your fatal mistakes.
