I thought it was the weather
but in the sun, I feel the same
I thought it was my hormones
But the menstrual cycle is only part of my pain
I thought it was my location
But when I move, it follows
and when I try to change
I always revert back to my ways
Maybe it's just me
And I will never change
Tripping over my own feet
Until I can't get up again
jsb Mar 25
Isolation to escape the pain
Dreaming to self-medicate
unsatisfied with the life ascribed
So, I built my own island
The only inhabitant, I was the queen
But I soon became lonely
So, I created some friends
To do all the things I'm afraid to do
Fragments of my self
Eternally multiplying
Now I can no longer be alone
Forever haunting
Trapped in a mirror maze
The more I see myself, the further I stray
"Who am I?"
This body asks itself every day
It can never find an answer
All it knows is that
By becoming everyone
It became no one
i never outgrew my imaginary friends

Behind these eyes lies a universe unseen
I've forfeited my own memories for the details of these dreams
No one knows
Because I'm selfish
I don't want anybody else's footprints in the sand
I'm afraid
That if I hand it over it will no longer be mine
But if I don't, it'll never exist
And my ideas will be born and die within their nest

Some things may seem pointless to you
But when we see you try
It lights up our lives
Gestures big or small; it doesn't matter
If you show us that you want us
It's enough to hold our broken hearts together
jsb Feb 23
Should I run away?
Or try?
Alone is security
Should I clip my wings?
Or fly?
Flock with the enemy
Should I leave my home behind?
Drift on the wind and find
Another soul to bind to
Make peace with uncertainty
a section of some lyrics i wrote.

Space is good for us
Allows our souls to recharge
Though I do miss you
jsb Feb 19
Wine and cider and shots of whisky
Two days later, you're still with me
Pounding at my brain
Regret returns again
Will I ever learn?
