If there was one word One word, isolated by itself That I cannot stand above all others It would have to be "Okay" I despise "Okay" "Okay" Is how your millionth day at work went "Okay" Is off-brand raisin bran "Okay" Is how you say school is going When you don't want to admit you spend Every second of it Wanting to die
"Okay" Is packed to the brim with Hidden implications Like a treasure chest Filled with bottles With little subliminal hatreds Written on tiny slips of paper Passively aggressively pushed inside To discover later As I pull out a treasure map And try to decipher Where I went wrong
"Okay" Is a one word dismissal That feels like an essay a thousand pages long "Okay" Is a poison dripping with disinterest When I dared to share with you Something I thought might make you smile "Okay" Is like trying to talk to a wall While watching the paint on it dry "Okay" Takes two seconds to write Yet I waited days For that dreaded word To grace my notifications "Okay" Should be used sparingly As if each time you send it You **** the receiver just a little bit "Okay" Should not be said so often that I know what you're about to say Like I saw it in a crystal ball "Okay" Is not looking up from your phone When I tell you about my day "Okay" Is not the proper response To "I love you"
They say that the opposite of love isn't hatred It's indifference And I can't think of a response More indifferent to pouring out My heart into your hands Than "Okay" At least the last thing you said to me Before we parted ways Showed that you cared At least a little bit "I hate you" Stung less Than the thousands of times Over our countless conversations You responded "Okay" Okay?
On my wrist Sits a rubber band. Is it random Or was it planned? snap I want to cut My skin so deep. My flesh is scarred, Secrets I keep. snap snap I snap this little band To feel again. Marks on my skin; Happiness I feign. snap snap On my wrist Sits a rubber band. Inflicting pain; You wouldn't understand. ~j.l.
I promised I wouldn't cut, but I didn't promise to stop my self harm.
I’ve been released It wasn’t bad it wasn’t good I was just trapped Trapped in a place where I had no freedom I was told what to do How to do it And I couldn’t change my mind I’m finally free But now all you do is haunt me
To be, or not to be. That is a decision. To learn, or not to learn. That is a lesson. To see, or not to see. That is a mission. To love, or not to love. That is obvious. To live, or not to live. That is an option. Who am I? Now THAT is the question.
I don't think Will you share with me All the people have gone Not too late to join them Tell me it's all okay Tell me not to panic Only if we knew the way Keep on flying up If the weight of gravity allows Let the force pull me Let it pull me earthbound Maybe it's meant to be You're welcome to join me Seldom does the light shine Everything shades beneath Let me go now please Fly alone into the after
It takes a year, for the pain to leave my veins, for the memories of you to fade, for the cuts in my soul to heal, for rhythm of my heart to change when I’m around you, to forget your touch on my mind, to forgive the universe for meeting you, to live life like you and me had never happened.
I am in love Head over heels A thunderstorm of flutters in my heart But I will put you, Lord, first For if I live my life by the way of God Everything else will fall into place All I need is to have a little faith
Misery follows me like a lost puppy, Sulking in my happiness, A tear of happiness trickles down, though a tear regardless. Tears that now burn my face, For misery draws close, Like the saying goes misery loves company, Looks like it just found me.
I love him I tell myself I know that We will be together forever I don’t believe that We could be separated My thoughts tell me that He’s the love of my life Sometimes my heart lies and says I could live an eternity Without him Like my friends say “We’re perfect for each other” And you can’t tell me He’s not the one.
