What are you than
A grain of salt
Lost in cosmos
What are you than
A rain of tears
Or grief
What are you than
A eternally conflicted
Person than a man

As the being that
Once lived died in you
And you a decoy of existence
As the grief went to your blood not soul
Leaving you black
We went down to the meadow
kissed underneath the hedgerow

and never had to go
to the cinema.

once upon a time, i loved a boy
until he broke me

once upon a time, a boy loved me
until i broke him

once upon a time, a boy loved me
until he broke me

sometimes there are
no princes
no princesses,
just sad little girls and sad little boys
and no happy endings.
it wasn't until the sun rose
that I realized
just how much
I was in love with the moon

when i laugh i look at you
and maybe it’s wishful thinking
but sometimes i think
you do the same, too.
I often look up
When my world is down
To stare at the stars
When no one is around

People come in all  ways
As different as the days
Some of us are glass, shattered
Some of us are paper, tattered
Some are candles, claimed by devotion
Some are uncertain as the ocean
Some split under force, like stones
Underneath, all are flesh and bones
We're all shattered, tattered, claimed
Uncertain, split, broken all the same.

i climb the scaffolding
look down below
spirit faltering
will i die in the blow?

caffeine swirling,
dizziness whirling,
truth obscured

dry darkness,
unfeeling eyes,
dropping, heartless
out of the skies

failing, falling,
faster than water,
missed my calling,
embracing slaughter

but i'm still here,
didn't dare,
risk the fear
of devil's snare
This was a memory. At the moment I do not have suicidal wishes.

They could never hurt,
They could never cut,
They could never make you bleed,

A manifestation of self-hate,
Written in bold,
Anorexia, Bulimia, Depression,
I was sold.

The last,
Written on a bloodstained note,
"I can't stay afloat"
