Give a man a book,
He'll burn it for a day.
Give a man a typewriter:
His mind will burn forever.

I stretch
Arms high
Legs long,
Reaching for the sky.
God help me,
If I could
Reach Heaven,
This pain would subside.

And all these months
Of breaking
And bending
Over and over and over
Would be a mere dream.
That somehow
The fighting
The tears
The I love you, but I can't
Made up memories.


I stretch,
Arms to the sky,
No looking down.
Remind myself...
I don't need you
To get me high.
I have wings
You can't touch.

I can get me high.

I despise myself for not being someone you could love.

Monet Echo
What if every little thought
That lives inside your head
Instead of hiding away in there
Was spoken out, was said?

Would you be embarrassed?
Would you hate your mouth?
Would you rather be mute
Than let the truth come out?

What if every little thing
That people thought of you
Instead of being tucked away
Was heard, was listened to?

Would you be ashamed?
Would you cover your ears?
Would you rather be deaf
Than let the truth come near?

And what if every image
That passes through your thoughts
Was freed from its prison
To roam until it rots?

Would you be disgusted?
Would you look away?
Would you rather be blind
Than see your thoughts at play?

the way you love
says a lot about you

but the way you break
says a lot about where you came from
