September 29, 1984
Dear so and so 
Gather me up because I'm lost
I'm crawling on the floor, rolling on the ground
I might cry, I won't go home

I am turning up in circles 
And I'm spinning on my knuckles
Don't forget that there are circles left undone
And very close to me
Forgive me, comfort me
I'm crawling on the floor, rolling on the ground

There's a blanket wrapped around my head 
I'm moving in a line that's shaped like this 
I'm...I'm holding in my breath
I have a room
Can you tell if I am lying
Don't forget that I'm living inside the space where wall and floor meet
There's a box inside my chest
An animal stuffed with my frustrations
Can you hear me?
Don't forget that I'm alone when you're away

You make me act like other people
Comfort me, you comfort me, you make me die
I'm gonna cry, I won't go home

Dooooooooonnnnnn't kill the god of sadness 
Just don't let her get you down
See the man inside a book I read, can't handle his own head
So what the hell am I supposed to do?
I wonder how he died
My hands are shaking, don't you love me anymore
I only need a person, keep my shoulders
Stand around, lie down, move your head above the floor

Gather me up because I'm lost
Or I'm back where I started from
I'm crawling on the floor, rolling on the ground
I'm gonna cry, you look for me

Love Kristin 
P.S. Keep them coming
