You asked me if I was happy
and knew that I was not.
You can't become something
If you believe
You are
Nothing.
I miss love.
It's been so long since I've seen her.

You told me I had the saddest eyes you'd ever seen,
And now I can't look at myself without crying.

Sometimes it feels like I'm standing on the street corner waiting for someone to pick me up, but I never told them where to get me.
Does everyone feel this alone?

The air was so cold I swear I saw my bones shaking.
He slipped his hand into mine but I didn't feel a thing.
The ground beneath me split in two and I tried to scream but my voice fell into such an emptiness it swallowed it whole.
The trees dropped their leaves and I thought it looked like they were crying. Do you hear that? I whispered. What? I think I'm dying.

I told him,
sometimes you look at me like you hate me.
Maybe I do
He said.
Not taking a moment to breath in between his thoughts.
Sometimes you look at yourself like that too
He said.
Maybe I do
I said.
