I swear they burrowed in.

I’ll take the thing this way
you take that other thing that way
wait move a little to the left
I don’t want to move to the right
you’ve always been in charge
and I’d like to be this time
look what happened
when I let you guide us through
repeating it’s the shorter way
we will have extra time
as if warning signs
are placed strategically
to keep others out of safe places
right?
no the warning sign was properly placed
and now look at our arms
these things are attached
I swear they’ve burrowed in
and their eyes are protruding from the wounds
they made as they burrowed
quickly and without any courtesy at all
maybe they’ll burrow themselves all the way in
and eat away through our center
and finally I’ll depart of you
the part of me
that ignores commonly placed suggestions.

Thanks for reading.
