Birth to death
no choice
no power
get what you get

parents
say they know
say they understand
but sometimes they cause
our deepest pains,
words,
phrases,
disappointment,
echo out of their mouths
bouncing around our skulls
tearing us apart
"I was your age too once"
but you were never me.
"why do you have to be like this"
choosing not to see my pain
doesn't mean it's not there
"lazy little brat"
"act like an adult,
be more responsible,
more mature"
"you are a CHILD!"
I want wings
I want to fly
to get away
to be free
to be me
get what you get

-they say it will get better but what if I cant wait that long...
random and not my best but whatever

Red lines run through a field of white
Fire
Flames
Searing
Pain  
Calm
Serenity
The tears stop flowing
Disgust
Longing to be someone,
Anyone  else
Get up
Clean up
Be strong
Live on…

Do it all again...

See that girl
See her there
See her eyes
Always searching
See her smile
Always fading
See her shoulders
Always slouching
See her tears
Always falling
See that girl
See her there

One day
One day soon
Happiness will arrive
Warming you from
The inside out
It will arrive
Consuming you entirely
Wrapping you up
Never letting you go

One day it will come
I promise
One day
One day soon
All will be okay
Light
Bright
One day
One day soon

lines etched in skin
reflecting places I've been
thoughts
names
words
the world moves fast
speeding by
too fast
stuck here
too slow
too slow…
it all fades away
cold
dark
Alone.
