i run from room to room
to the gas station
to the store
to the mall
to my car
to the fields
to get away from
but you and my feelings won't leave me alone
you both follow me wherever i go
i am going to have to run across the globe
for the rest of my life
to get away from my feelings
There was a boy named
In my class
Who took his life two weeks before
Had a laugh that never sounded like
A boy asked
To go fishing but
He said he had plans
He sent a message to five
Of his closest friends
And he called them
One lived down the street
And they say he
She watched his light flicker when
Mercury dipped Venus
Earth threw Mars in the air
Saturn spun Jupiter
And Uranus waltzed with Neptune
Tapped her toes on her own
She watched her
Study Pluto’s taps
From 3.67 Billion miles away
And although they all danced
Longed to hold
I finally have learned the difference between being used and being a good friend.
I am a paradox
I love flowers, but I am not the kind of girl that you give them to.
I come alive at night, yet I'm afraid of the dark.
I am a messy person, but I like for things to be clean.
I have much to say, and say nothing at all.
I feel the need to run far, but despise running.
I am easily hurt yet I won't let you close enough to do that.
I have a wild heart trapped in a cage.
I am full of love but I won't give it anymore.
I love blue eyes yet I fell for brown.
I miss you but I don't wish for you.
I prefer being alone yet I hate being lonely.
I am complicated but easy to figure out.
I am neon pink yet prefer navy.
I am full, but I am still not filled.
when someone leaves you, reinvent yourself.
redecorate your soul with reds and pinks this time, instead of blues and greens.
pull the tangled weeds he left in your crevices, and plant as many flowers as you can think of in their place.
hang beautiful lights and magnificent paintings in replacement of his stupid poster of his favorite band that you never even liked.
paint your mind with vibrant colors that make your heart beat quickly.
and remember to never, EVER let anyone take these things away from you.
we all need to shatter our glass walls
so we can remake those walls into glass castles
