I know that it sounds desperate-
Quinton Horras Yard

What i had-
Recently, come lost to me.

Like winter looses warmth-
And the sidewalk looses leaves.

I see them in the trees-
I hope that they miss me.

I know that it sounds desperate-
Its desperate, I agree.

and maybe it isn't desperation until you're wide awake at 2:41am, crying and gasping for air as you find yourself carving metaphors into your skin in the dark

Help me
I'm desperate
I have puke in my hair

Help me
I'm desperate
I threw up twice in an hour

Help me
I'm desperate
No one sees the pain I'm in

Help me
I'm desperate
Or is there even a point?

A bulimic's cry. I don't want to live like this anymore, yet I know no other way. Anyways, recovery never lasts. She always comes back.

fading into nothing
seeking oblivion
only to find
rock bottom

It's making me insane
Making me not the same

her pale legs
and knees brown
with soil
from a yard
in Vermont

it wasn’t our yard
and they weren’t our friends

a stolen

Please, take me away to somewhere that feels like home.

Stay in my life
Oh baby, please, I beg you

#desperate   #stay   #10w  

Am tired of living
At the mercy of others.
Feeding from the hands
Of the donors.
Following their plans
For they are the leaders.
If my destiny would falter
For they are the vultures
Preying on my dreams
For only I possess
The power of the dreamers.
Am just tired of living at the mercy of others!

lost in the darkness
no mind, no morals, no me
something, anything
fearing present and future
clutch at maybes, broken nails
