I dye my hair red so,
when i wash it out i can imagine the red water
as blood
I have to find my indulgence somehow

How does one
know they're in love
if love has yet to exist?
is it all just a scam?
is he the lion and I the lamb?
when he pulls me in by my waist,
does he only want a taste?

will i ever be his wife,
or will i get drawn in and stabbed with a knife?

what is love?
how does it sound?
what is love?
how are you bound?

how must we know?

im afraid i can't, so i must go,,,

who am i to you?
        cold wind stealing your breath?
am i someone new?
        standing face to face with death?

the tightness in your body as she stands against you covered in lace?
        the goosebumps after a fright lingers?
the way your hands begin trace?
        her eyes staring in a trance?
warm breath upon your face?
        the urge in a thunderstorm to dance?
am i just a glance?
a glance you give yourself in the mirror before leaving for class,
a glance you give after a night of lust
a glance you give to a girl walking as you pass,
a glance down as the snow begins to gust,
a glance you gave me knowing it would be our last.

who am i to you?

Why does my own house feel like a prison I can’t escape from?
I wish I could move out. I can’t deal with the mental anguish my dad puts me through. I just can’t do it anymore

Social Distancing does not mean Divorce...
My parents are getting divorced after a fight I had with my dad. This changes everything. My mom tries to reassure me I’m not the reason for this, but I know for the rest of my life this will haunt me

Do you ever wish,
that you could undo something you did...
But at the same time,
you wouldn’t?
My mind is racing, my thoughts are becoming overwhelming and I can’t take it any longer...part of me wishes it never happened, I could take it all back and forget about it, but then again, I wouldn’t want too...
