Goodbye
L Apr 2016
I'm officially leaving HP. I'm about to graduate high school, go to college, start a new chapter of my life... And I feel that  leaving this site behind is what's best for me. I may join another site, who knows? But for now, I'm writing in my head. Everything sounds so much better there anyway.
Thank you.

With love,
Leigh

I was ***** by someone who "loved" me.
Why should I be afraid of strangers?
My mom always told me to be safe when I went out, but she never warned against about the people closest to me.

Rumpled grey sheets
Slow sleepy smiles
Breath warm from dreaming
Pillows cradling thoughts  
Fingers intertwined with stars
Soft lips pressed against dry
Say we'll never have to leave this place
This heaven we've found in each other's arms
Afternoon's spent in your embrace
There's no place I'd rather be

For my angel, my saving grace

And wonder why antagonists matter...

And you're a liar, at least all of your friends are
And so am I, just typically drowned in my car
It's my party and I'll cry to the end
You must try harder than kissing all of my friends

It takes a bit more, yeah it takes a bit more than you
It takes a bit more, yeah it takes a bit more than you

You're alive, at least as far as I can tell you are
And so am I, you beat me down and then we're back to my car
And it's so ironic how it's only been a year
And it's not my fault that you ****** everybody here
You // The 1975

Not mine
But I wish it was

Cat calls choke my confidence
My responses aren't so strong  
Skirts always feel too short
Shirts always too long

Some say I was asking for it
Others say it was my clothes
I say it was a misfit
Letting lust fall like dominoes

So here I am stuck screaming
Black and bruised and used
I wasn't asked to be born pretty
If I had been, I would've refused
For **** victims everywhere
Don't stay silent
Speak up
Speak out

As I sat in a room full of hundreds,
   crying and shaking and remembering,
I fully realized that
I am not my pain...
I am not what happened to me...
I am not what she did to me...
I am more than my depression.
I am more than my suicide attempt.
I am more than my ******.
**I am still here.
I am stronger than ever
