Inspired by the Kanye west Photo in the scribbles section on Ajawashington.com

“What I had to do – Had to run from you”
My dreams have nightmares carved into their neck
A beautiful disguise, the skies are a spilled paint can wreck
We talked with our eyes, Aretha showed me how to respect

“What I had to do – had to run from you”

I’ve created illusions within myself
Turned those that resemble you into demons
And those that do not into angels

What I had to do
Was disappear, run these shoes to the ground and the ground into gravel
I could no longer stay by you and eat myself alive.
