I am trying
but trying doesn't make
deep wounds heal any faster,

and you rubbing salt in them
does not help them to
hurt any less.

~~ From another time, where things seemed much worse without anything being that different. ~~

The moment was brief
But I saw through your cracks
And saw your missing pieces

Behind that mask of yours
Behind that smile you love to wear
Is a child drowning int its own tears
A soul in need of fixing

There's no need to hide your broken pieces
I want to put you back together
I can help you

The ecstasy of our embrace
Can be the glue that holds you together,
The soil that can make your grow
I can be your nurse
The artist that decorates your soul
With the beauty embedded in your broken self

With your shattered pieces
We can make something beautiful

Pieces of the past that hold together my present self

Some people...

If all they know is how to be broken
despite all efforts;
they are not the fix for you
nor yours to keep on fixing.

"Why did you stop trying to fix me?" she asked.

"Because, you can't glue someone back together when they won't hold still long enough to dry."

From a book I'll never write. :/

my head hurts
in a way
that fucking gross aspirin cannot fix
i can still taste the overdose
in the back of my throat
the pits of my
aching stomach
trying to expel
its chalky white substance
my head hurts
i'm too traumatized by
"pills"
fix me, fucking magically fix me
please

recently overdosed on Tylenol PM to escape and I regretted it.

Feeding the little thoughts
The doubts
The dreams I'm lucid in
But for a second they wrap around me
They grasp me with their warm hands
Tell me there's more
More to this
Something magical could happen
If you just wake up and run

And I believe it
In moments of anger
On days I'm misunderstood
I believe it
When I feel stuck

Feeding the little thoughts
Giving them characters and stories
Taking away from my own reality
To fuel this dream

And I'm sinking
Sinking ship
I feed these thoughts
And you reach out
And you save me
Every time

Don't fix what isn't broken
Can't fix what never existed

This was a spurr of the moment write that isn't based off of anything (currently) happening in my life. It is a thought I've been examining within myself and in my relationships with others.
#broken   #10w   #fix   #existed  

I had a dream last night
There was a neckless of edible beads
The sales women said,
It will help you forget the past,
Live in the future
I said give me one, I'm still thinking about the past...
I swallowed it,
Yet, no effect!
Oh, dream moods
Give me that quick fix
Or an escape from reality.

i wrote until my fingers bled
and even then,
things still didn't make sense

They’d given up on love,
But somewhere along the line
They found sadness beautiful.

He would watch her,
As she wrote about her pain.
Her distant gaze
Otherworldly.

He provoked her.
A teardrop shining
As it meandered down her cheek.
This endless cycle of her wanting
To be his tragic girl.

But she caves when he’s near,
The stillness shattered with a smile.
Because what are they if
There’s nothing left to fix?
