Poem: Stoplight Glaring Red

I asked Cyro to give me an idea for a song. Because I wanna write a song. And since we were sitting at a red stoplight at the time, stoplight was the answer.

Well, that’s a good option.

Also… Triggers:

Cursing, breaking the law, reference to being caught, etc


Stoplight Glaring Red

Caught at the crossroads
stoplight glaring red
cant seem to move forward
theres no way back
when we will be able to move
dont care if its forward right or left

this seems absurd
staring at this light
everyone is getting their chance
as the light switches off
and im just sitting here
waiting
caught at the crossroads

stoplight flickers
im ready and raring to go
only to have an ambulance
race pass stopping the flow
and then as i release the brake
the stoplight flips back
im stuck staring
at this glaring red
theres no hope left

Caught at the crossroads
stoplight glaring red
cant seem to move forward
theres no way back
when we will be able to move
dont care if its forward right or left

the passenger makes a comment
maybe we should turn here
a break in traffic lets us
theres no sign saying turns denied
so give it a try
only to find flow hasn’t broken
in time for me to sneak out

these crossroads are denying me
movement in all directions
and im refusing to say
if thats a misconception
or a denial by a higher power
when the stoplight offers a change
only to find traffic
is blocking me in
and as they move forward
the spotlight changes again

fuck this shit

Caught at the crossroads
stoplight glaring red
cant seem to move forward
theres no way back
when we will be able to move
dont care if its forward right or left

I never wanted to drive
its better to walk there
yet there seems no mercy
behind this stupid wheel
as im caught waiting for a spotlight
surrounded by people honking
and ive just lost my patience
screw it
a ticket’s worth it
im breaking free

catch me if you can
there was a space for me
who cares if laws are broken
im making it pass this intersection
and you wont be stopping me

at least until the next

caught at the crossroads
stoplight glaring red
cant seem to move forward
theres no way back
when we will be able to move
dont care if its forward right or left

you wont always hold me back
im racing forward
even if green isnt likely
