don't hold me to the promises
i whispered in your ear
with my champagne tongue
rolling in that bed of roses

what happens at midnight
need not see the dawn.

stay on your knees

Red lips on white skin,
Like rose petals on new snow,
Come beautiful lies.

how many men
do i have to fill myself up with
before i am able
to get the feeling of you
out of my chest

Do you ever think of me on rainy days?
about how I used to tell you
that you reminded me of the latter?
about how the pitter patter of the raindrops,
sounded just like the tears you wiped away?
Sometimes I sit in a coffeeshop and inhale the aroma,
and I swear I see your shadow in the rain.

I can't  
b  r  e  a  t  h  e

the lies that I've been fed are clouding up my lungs

rotting them from the inside

the pain feels as though
every breath is a
mistake

  d e c a y

the gaping holes start to
f e s t e r  &  f r a y
from all the secondhand

d e l i r i u m

please,
                      make
                                      it
                                                go
                                                                ­a
                                        
                                                                ­               w
                  
                                                                ­                      a
                                         ­                                         
                                                                ­                       y

                                                              ­                   .

The good don’t teach you anything

I have never gained strength
From understanding
Or struggled to survive
By being loved
Allies do not show you how
To fight for your life

It is too comfortable
Mercy

Lies have only made me honest
Betrayal lent forgiveness
Those that aim to wound me
Leave badges instead of scars
Respect is hard won
Kindness is not

Apathy lends empathy
I have never been granted fortitude
Or become more wise
No, I have never been taught
How to be a decent human being
From my friends

I have been loathed
And despised
And I am grateful
For these lessons
With vile contempt

Evil and cruel
Made me a better person
I have evolved
Through your hatred

Thank you
For showing me

The monster I never want to be

one of these days I'm gonna say something crazy like I like you and you'll do something crazy like stay.

I absolutely oppose this
