Head above water
The shore looks so small
Will I ever be liberated
before the demons collect their toll?

I don't know the answers
To anything at all
I don't know if I'll be okay
I'm just floating along

being a
hopeless romantic
is just
appreciating
art
that breathes.

Living in sadness
So you disappeared
Now you left your sadness
With those still
Living here…

stale dating scenes
goodbye monogamy
society is changing
leaving me behind
no choice but to
align my mind

i am rough
i am so sad
i just
i want you so bad

articulating doesn't come easy
these emotions i have
twisted up inside me
bring me to the light
wring me out tonight

I'd die a thousand gruesome times
just to incarnate our love
The high is enough for me to drop all morale
I wish they'd bottle you up
Fill my cup
I want to feel you inside me
I don't know when enough is enough

i wish someone taught me
how to love,
to feel compassion,
hold ambition...
i guess we can't all be lucky
and have loving parents...

i'll just use my intuition.

I fall in love
with people I can't have.
It's in my design.
I wake up every morning
next to you
knowing you'll leave sometime soon.
It's in my design.
I know it's going to break me,
but I fill the cracks
with the time I have left with you.
I know you don't love me
like I love you.
It's in my design.
I'd die for you.

I've been thinking about my connection to drugs. I've thought about why I've struggled my whole life...to feel utterly powerless.
Sometimes
I'm so lonely.
I don't even think lonely is the right answer.
Empty.
Void.
Abyss.
Jaded.
I don't know.
It swallows me into this vortex and it pushes everyone I love away. It made my boyfriend whom I love leave me.  Like always. Not new.
I'm done. I have to fight. It's that or die.
I don't want to die...
Please. I don't.
Sometimes I wish I was never born.
It hurts so much.
