If I was supposed to
be defined by grades on
a paper, or by words in
a dictionary

I wouldn’t have
been born human.

If I was supposed to
be confined by margins
on an essay, or by stars
on a flag.

I wouldn’t have
the ability to create.

If I was supposed to
be defined by hatred
to my name or by my
disgraceful past.

I wouldn’t have
been born me.
If I die today
Not much in the world would change
A clump of cells gone,
Dreams extinguished, Love dissolved
Bookshelves left to rot.
Loved ones crying will move on
God knows where I'd be
Might as well take it easy
And enjoy what's left of me
I still cringe when I meet someone with your name

Your name

Like the slowest poison
It never leaves me

Just slowly eats away

Ah your name

How I wish I could eradicate it from my soul

When does the quo return?
When will the screams cease?
When can humanity be revived?
When will we no longer be trapped inside?
When will these walls fade away?
When shall the restraints be put to rest?
When do we know it is safe?
When will the fog dissipate?
When will we know our fate...?

skyy omalley
I'm desperately looking for you
I even let go of what I have possessed
Wind blows as if it slashed my ears
My freezing body feels nothing but pain

I'm here, It's really painful
My heart is filled with pains
If I stumble while running,
I can never go back
I'm here, get me out of here,
My prince
Can't I even dream?

In the rain penetrating my eyes
I pretend to be crazy with a smirk

I'm here, it's overflowing
I keep bearing this love
It's completely unworthy
I'm here, get me out of here,
my prince
Can't I even dream?

Can't I even dream?

always you

I'm not over you
and i don't think i'll ever be
