You need rehab from me, and I’m sorry
but this isn’t healthy.
Admitting being a problem is sobering
And I hope you can recover from my withdrawal.
I’ll be busy detoxing myself, for you
For everyone after you.
I hope you remember how great you are!!
I'll be cheering you on from a far!!
& that you're better off
broke up with my boyfriend today and it was the classic story, opposites attract but they don't last.. almost everything that was attractive wasn't out of resemblance to one's self, but to the extreme differences in one another.
Struggling to want to communicate, is a red flag
I know not what I am
But I sure as **** am scared
Sometimes I catch a glimpse
and wish I had not dared.

I haven't been myself I mumbled,
it's been a short 4 years.
Yet everyday I am humbled!
to be honest with my fears!

Surviving off my self loathing
are the devilish voices that I feed.  
Watering my mind's garden is refreshing
and THAT'S the energy that I need!
This piece has a very surprisingly optimistic point of view by the end of it.
I don't want to be made
to feel broken
For wearing my heart out on my sleeve.
Stop making me feel broken
for wearing my heart out on my sleeve.
But I would like to thank you

For making me feel complete.

I have finally noticed

That I am all that I need.
You have pushed me closer to myself
be with someone who starts a fire
brings the kindle
glows when they're around you
and brags about your warmth
not someone who retreats
when you crackle

be with someone who sinks deep
past the choppy surface
underneath your sarcasm
and still sees your worth
not someone whose scared
by your differences
i am washing my face
he still wont look at me
i am dancing to his music
he still wont look at me
i am timidly talking to him
he still wont look at me
i am watching him talk with you
he watches you so carefully
i wonder what he sees
when he holds your gaze considerably
dear boyfriend, i'm here too
The room is shaking
Oh wait that's just me
Shake me from my delusion
It's me I'm really good at fooling
Wanna watch me break free
From my own insanity
There is a whirlwind in my heart
Its tearing me apart!
And I can not see past
All this broken glass
Haha I'm anxious
when I say
I want to run away
please take me seriously
when i say i feel alone
please reassure me i am not
lately i have trapped myself
inside a fragile bubble
no love gets by my little wall
nor love from within
the voices yell silly things
and my doubt lends an ear
when I joke I'm gonna to leave  
simply tell me
please, stay awhile?
Wake me up to the harsh reality
that people care? and you are not alone?
when you show up for them,
and they open the door?
isn't that all the reassurance you need?
don't be silly and ask them to chase after you
because it is only your doubt that will follow
