believe me
I need help
believe me
I don't need you
I'm okay
I run away
letting go
hold you closer
my voice
blows like the wind
can't you feel it
don't you hear it
believe me
everything is okay
I need you
I'm not okay
I don't want help
I run away
waiting for the bus
the bus I can't get on
the bus I dream of

I think she's inside
I'm waiting to sit down

I'll say good morning now
I'll say have a good day
I promise

I'll lean my head against the window and listen to music like I used to

that wasn't too long ago
maybe a decade
or a century
when I waited outside in the rain
the hot sun pouring down
mosquitoes eating up my legs

waiting for the bus
I wish I could step on
        one more time
take me home
I know you will
are we moving on
are we letting go

you can't do so

nothing feels good
I can't fix it

I just wanted to try
we're so good at falling
I must admit
I love the feeling
of letting go
feels so good to fall
a little homesick
every day I open my eyes
looking up
these are unknown walls

I miss my favorite mug
the loud music next door
small birds coming into my room
pigeons running on the roof

somewhere
nothing is wrong

when I go back
feel so sleepy
so quiet

don't let me stay for long
DIAGNOSED AS A LIAR

SECRETS ROT MY ORGANS AWAY

MY TONGUE ITCHES TO NOT

HOW SHOULD I SPEAK
HOW DO I TALK

YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THE TRUTH
SO I LIE

I LIE UNTIL YOU BELIEVE ME AGAIN
I shouldn't think about you

I do

I want you to think about me too

I saw you in my dream
Is that okay
I'll ask for your permission

I shouldn't think of you


I do

I do

I hope you do too
