we lit the flower petals on
fire because we wanted to destroy something beautiful

i didn't know i was beautiful
until you destroyed me.

I'm Positive
 Feb 29 Henley
I'm trying to be positive
I'm trying to smile with my teeth
I'm trying to find things in the world beautiful.
I'm trying to be happy
Because maybe I'll be happy enough
To love again.
I'm trying.
I promise.
For those who do not understand why I hurt: nor do I.

She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by--
And never knew.*

sometimes i cry.
i cry until i have no tears left and my voice has long left me.
i sob until it feels like my lungs collapse.

(similarly to the world that i built with you in my head)
only you have ever made me cry myself to sleep

I'm fine.
So don't question why
tears are filling my eyes.
I'm stressed
to do my best.
I must confess,
I'm a mess.
All this work in front of me,
the work,
it hurts my mind.
So don't wonder why
I will sit here and lie.
If you ask if I'm okay
just know I'll say
the same thing every time.

I'm fine......

And when you left
I overwatered all your flowers
