Four Kids (and a Game They Played Together)

from Beyond Canon by Homestuck



it’s been a little bit since the last time we all talked
so...how are all of you doing?
i know that i have been a bit unkind to you all
and i’m trying to undo it

we thought this ended years ago but it survived
i've forgotten far too often why i even recognize these faces
that don't have names placed with them
inside my hazy brain, but then
there's too much to begin to touch on here

pulled back
once again
and i told myself,
told myself,
told myself
i wouldn’t be on this adventure

but i’m haunted by
all of these memories
that i have of four kids
and the game they played together

i burned the bridges thoroughly but still everyone's trusting me again
and i should be relieved but it happened so suddenly
and i know in my heart i haven't earned this,
but everyone acts like my concern isn't a problem
like nothing is wrong with my very involvement

but i know how the song ends

i can’t begin to list the times that i’ve walked
along this road and concluded
that nothing that i’ve done here will make sense, in the end
but i find that kind of soothing
