I know that I'm a disappointment.

I've only been told that half a million times.

It's a running joke within the family now.

I know that I get angry at you.

I know I fight with you.

I know I make things hard.

And as much as you don't think so,

I'm trying really hard.

I'm trying to be better.

I'm trying to better myself.

Get my grades up.

And fix myself for you.

But to you,

I'll always be a dissapointment.

I don't know why I keep crying

What is wrong with me?!

Why can't I keep my emotions stable?

Why is this happening to ME


Why can't I just be normal

For once in my miserable life

I have a great girl

I have amazing friends

Supportive parents

Understanding siblings

So why me

Why does this still happen to me

After all these years of not feeling okay

Why can't it just go away

Why can't I just stop crying

I love everyone in my life

I'm not so sure that I love life anymore

Or even myself.

I cry myself to sleep a lot

Almost every night

I'll cry myself to sleep tonight

I can see it now,

Head in my pillow to muffle the sobs so my sister won't hear me

I won't tell you that I'm crying

I don't want you to worry

I can't have you worry about me anymore than you already do

Which is a lot

So I'll just cry by myself

Without anyone knowing

All alone

Like I'm meant to be

Your lies lured me in

They sounded sickly sweet

If only they were true

Maybe I would've stayed longer

Maybe I would never have walked away

Maybe we would still be together

But your lies stopped

I was no longer beautiful

I needed to lose weight

I was no longer your girl

I was your responsibility

I was no longer worthy of your love

I was only worthy of the truth

The painful painful truth

But no matter how painful it was,

I stayed

And I listened

Until one day you lied again

I finally saw through the facade of your lies

I no longer held onto the notion that I was nothing

I became myself again, well as much of myself that I could

I left you and never looked back

You called and texted, but I never answered

I finally had you out of my life

And I was going to be free

Until I wasn't

You showed up again

You sweet talked me into believing you again

This time it went too far

I believed you a little too much

So much that I'm now six feet under

In a way that's a good thing

It means that I don't have to hear your sweet lies ever again.

I feel like I'm better off dead

No one will miss me

Everyone will be happier when I'm gone

The noose is ready

The blade is set

All I need now is the courage

The courage to just end it

To nip this miserable life in the bud

I feel like I have nothing to live for anymore

Would everything be better if I died?


If only I could get out of my head

I could be dead

My happiness is gone.

I don't know where it went.

It might have slipped out of my heart and up my throat while I was sleeping.

Or someone might have stolen it.

All I know is that it's gone forever.

I have my happy pills.

They force fake happiness into my brain.

They trick my heart into thinking that I'm happy.

They trick my friends into thinking I'm happy.

They trick him into thinking I'm happy.

They trick my family into thinking I'm happy.

But the worst of all is that they trick me into thinking I'm happy.

My happiness is gone.

Where could it have gone?

Maybe it's there behind your ear.

Or hidden in a hat.

Is this a magic trick?

One where you wave your hand over the hat and say the 'magic word'?

This is a cruel trick.

One that can't be undone.

My happiness is gone.

And its no where to be found.

i'm sorry that i'm so emotional

i'm sorry for all the tears

i'm sorry

i'm not trying to be so..scared

so angry

so heartbroken

so done with the world

i can't take this feeling anymore

this burning

this rotting

the void that my being has become

i'm so sorry

that i have become such an inconvenience

I'm lost

I'm lost in my own mind

I'm drowning in them

They're dragging me under

I'm lost

And this time

I wont be found

My heart beats like a drum.

It only beats that way for you.

The steady beat thrums in my chest.

'*** *** *** ***'

If you are near it speeds up.


When you are away it gets softer.

'***        ***       ***       ***'

I love the sound, oh how beautiful it is.

I hear yours too when my head is on your chest.

It speeds up when I smile at you.

Does it slow when I leave you?

Or does it stay the same, unbothered by the lack of my presence.

I need to know, if your drum reacts the same as mine.

Two drums beating in harmony.

Two drums beating in time.

She told me it was her heart

Something was wrong with it

That she needed to see the doctor.

She said that everything would be okay

And not to worry.

She’s really sick now

She can barely breathe

I tell her not to give up

To keep fighting

Keep pushing.

To look death in the eye and tell him to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

She laughs

And tells me that when it’s her time, she’ll know

She thinks it’s soon

I’m not ready.

You're like a sea

Thoughts of you wash over me

Soon enough,

Thoughts of you drown me

Not in a bad way

But to the point where the only person I can think of is you.

I love thinking of you, but then the thoughts start to change,

My anxiety whispers lies into my ears, about how you don't love me

Even though you said you do

That you don't want me,

But that's not what your arms around me suggest.

You are a sea,

And I'm a rock that your waves wash over.

I am learning to love myself

I am learning to embrace my scars

To embrace a little extra skin

To feel okay no matter what I'm wearing

To not let the words get to me

To not let them pierce my skin

They will ricochet off my skin

They will only make me stronger

And soon enough,

I'll be stronger than you

Watch out, I'm coming for you.

I have these little white lines

They're on my thighs

They tell the stories

Of the times I sat in my bathroom and cried

Of the times I felt truly alone

Of the times that I was told that I'm not loved

They bled

And they stung

But I still did it

Time and time again

Like it was nothing

I was told to stop

Or they would lock me up

So I stopped letting people find out

No one knew

I was so good at hiding it

Until one day

Someone hit my thigh and everyone found out

They were so upset

I stopped

And now all  I have are lines

To remind me

That at one point

I wanted to hurt myself

Truth is

That sometimes, I still want to

Darkness, thats all I can see.

No light, no glimmer of hope.

No way out, no way in.

How did I end up here?

How do I escape?

Simple, I don't.

When will the light kiss my face again?

When will the wind caress my skin?

When will the grass tickle my feet?

It wont.

I will never be allowed to leave.

I can never be who I once was.

I can never go back.

I might be happy now but that can change.

The darkness will slip it's cold dark hand into my heart and steal it away.

How long will this last?

When will it be over?

When will my cries be heard?

When will this darkness release me from it's grasp?

The answer?

I hate myself

Eveything about me

I'm told that I'm pretty

That I'm enough

But that's for me to decide

And I will never tell myself that I'm enough

Or Pretty

Or that I'm not fat

Because I'm not

I'm not enough

I'm not pretty

I'm not skinny

I hate myself

That will never change

You tell me you love me,

But when will you show it?

You tell me that I'm beautiful,

But never to my face

You tell me you're here for me,

But shy away in person

When will your love extend outside of your phone?

I have a noose in my drawer

It calls out to me sometimes

It calls my name in the dead of night

Luring me to tie it to my fan

Stand up on that chair

And drop.

It tells me that it would look pretty around my neck

Like a diamond necklace

It tells me that everything would be better

If I just died

If I got away from this hell called Earth

It tells me that no one really loves me anyway

So why not,

Just jump from that chair

With my pretty necklace tied around my neck

And when they find me,

They won't be sad

They'll be happy that I'm finally gone

Out of their lives

No longer a burden

No longer a pest

No longer Breathing

And six feet under the ground

Where I belong.

Your light outshines the rest

It's brighter and sweeter

It bekons me like a ship to a lighthouse

Like a moth to a flame

I can't get too close though,

I fear I might burn myself

I feel like you will push me away

That you'll ignore me

That you'll laugh at me  

Somedays, I see your light and think to myself,

What would I do to bask in your light?

To shine brighter than the rest

But you dont see me

You don't even know I'm alive

For I am just darkness

And you are light

Love between us is forbidden

And why would you love me?

I bring fear

You bring hope and happiness and life

You'll never feel the same


I am darkness

And you are light

Red drips from my arm

It drips from my thigh

It's everywhere

Red is my favorite color

I love to watch it drip from my cuts

Deeper and deeper I go to see more red

It's entrancing

The way it flows

I cut to see the red

The red distracts me from the pain

The red is all I have

That's all we hear


Over and over again

When does it end

When will the stigma fade?


We are beautiful

We are strong

We are not;


Made of sugar and spice and everything nice

We are made of steel

We are born of strong mothers

And Grandmothers who went through it all

Who carried the weight of the world on their backs to make a better world for us.

We are told from a young age that we can't do anything

And I'm here to change that

Be you

Be strong

Be like a girl.

Stand with me

As I break this barrier of hate

Stand with me

As I get closer to the finish line

Stand with me

As I change the world

Stand with me

As I make us free

Once and for all

Stand with me

And we will soar

When you say love what's the first thing that comes to your mind?

Does pain come up?

How about suffering?

How about tears?



Yes, love can be bliss and it can be pure.

But that's not it.

Love isn't always kind.

Love can be cruel.

Cupid can shoot you with the arrow but not the person you now love.

Unrequited love is the worst kind.

But when two people are in love, it's a feeling that can't be expressed in words.

It can be hell.

But if you are truly in love, you can overcome anything.

When will you learn

That I am not a toy

I am not here for your entertainment

I do not exist for you

I exist for me

I don't dress for you

I dress for me

I don't need your approval

I don't need your permission

I want to be free

Not trapped in a cage like a bird

Singing a song of misery

I want to spread my wings and fly

I don't want you

I want me

And that's what I'll have.

I can't take this anymore

I can't keep living this life

I can't stay on this Earth anymore

Not when my only friend is my Razor

When my only solace is hurting myself

When the only thing that comforts me is the demon in my head

I feel like my friends don't love me the way that they say they do

I want to be done with this life so badly

I want to be done with the way life treats me

But that's life huh?

That's the way it is for everyone isn't it?

But for me it seems worse

It seems like everyone is out to get me

I'm done with everything

But at the same time

I still try, I still strive to be perfect

I try for my family, for my boyfriend, for my friends

I try but at the same time I'm done

How can that be?

Not Sorry

I'm not sorry for wanting to protect myself.
I'm not sorry for focussing on my health.
I'm not sorry that you're upset.
I'm sorry that I stayed so long.
I'm sorry that I let you do what you did.
I'm sorry that I let you lay your hands on me.
But no I'm not sorry that it's over.
I'm not sorry about what I said or did.
I'm not sorry for loving you.
But I'm sorry that I loved you for so long.
So no I'm not sorry.

As the pills slide down my throat

I burn with regret

Of telling him that I love him

Of fighting with my mom

Of not telling my family I love them enough

Of being me

I'm just a burden

At least some people think so

I'm one of those people

I told them that everything is better

But I lied

I told them

That I haven't hurt myself lately

But I have

Small cuts on my thighs

Not enough to stand out,

Just enough to bleed

Just enough to feel the pain I know I deserve

As I close my eyes for the last time

I think about how I got here

They are going to think that it was me


Truth is,

It's not me

It's the pills

Everyone fears something.

Whether it's the dark

Or spiders

Or thunder

Or people

Everyone has a fear

But some fears are worse than others

Some people fear the unknown

Some even fear, fear itself

Me? I have a lot of fears.

The one that outweighs the rest though,

Would have to be looking in the mirror and not recognizing the person looking back at me.

This feeling isn't new

But I hate it

I hate the way she looks at me when I talk about you

I hate the way my mom hates you

I hate the way my sister doesn't trust you

You've been nothing but good to me

You give me the love I need

You whisper 'I love you' into my ear when we hug

And don't even get me started on your kiss.

This feeling isn't new

I've felt like this for a while

I've been in love with you since the first time we made eye contact

The first time we touched

The first time you said 'hello'

So much has changed since then

Both of us have gone through some pretty toxic relationships

We held each other when we cried

We talked into the late hours of the night

We waited for each other

Even though it may not seem that way

But in the back of our heads

We knew

I knew

You're the one

So yeah, this isn't new

But everyday is a new day

And I want to spend every new day with you

For the rest of our lives.

Would you like me better,
If I looked like you
If I talked like you
If I carried myself the same
Or would you like me better,
If I was invisible
So you wouldn't have to look at me
Or see me in the halls
Or have to hear my voice?
Would you like me better,
If I just no longer existed?

I'm strong

I may not seem that way sometimes

But sometimes being strong isn't hiding emotions and putting on a brave face

It's being able to show your emotions to those who care

Those who would do anything for you

I am strong

I am not weak

And I will show you just how strong I am

I feel rotten

From the inside out

It started with my heart

And worked its way around the rest of my insides

My mind is slowly rotting now

The thoughts feel like a thick black tar

Never able to be cleaned

And traps anything that crosses its path

Everything good

Everything bad

I am rotting

And no amount of, therapy, medicine, or hugs can fix it

No matter how many times people try to save me

They are years too late

So I guess i'll rot

And live in this shell that used to be a body

Until the outside of me finally matches the inside

And I'm rotted in the ground

Six feet under.

Because of that ******* monster

Yet it still longs for him

I thought I could forget about him

That everything is made up

Or that I'm in a coma

And none of this is actually happening

Im just laying in a hospital bed

Alone with no one by my side

For they have all given up

I feel like this isn't real

Like I'm hallucinating

like I'm on a high that I can't come down from

One that's never-ending

None of this is real

And I guess, I'm finally realizing it.

                Everyday it's a new bone

Broken, Bruised all of this and more
               I feel like my mind is racing

So many thoughts
               Not enough room

So many things to keep track of
               Yet I'm still able to function

I'm still able to fake my happiness
               I'm able to convince everyone else that I'm okay

But truth is
                       I'm still breaking

Little by little

And soon enough
                                                                  I will fall apart completely

He's always there for me

He saves me

He saves me from the hell inside my head

He saves me from the people that torture me

He's always there for me

Whenever I feel alone

Or when I cry at 3 in the morning

He is there for me

No matter what

Who is he?

Sometimes I think about stepping into the street into oncoming traffic

Sometimes I think about swerving my car into the ditch

I promised everyone I love that I wouldnt think about this stuff anymore

But I can't keep that promise anymore

I don't wanna reach out for help

Dear dad,


Why were you such a bad person that mom doesn't want me to see you?

Why were you such a bad person that mom doesn't want you to know that I exist?

Why me?

Everyone else gets to say "My Dad"

But I don't

I get to say "My Stepdad"

But hey it's okay

You only missed 16 years

And not to mention not being there for my siblings

No, Grandma has to


Am I not good enough?

Did I do something wrong?

Tell me

What is it?

I want to know

If i can improve

If I can do something that will make everything better

To make the pain go away

Because if there is

I want to try

But dad

I need your help

You have to try too

You have to be my dad

I love roses

The color reminds me of the blood that drips from my arms

When I take the blade to my skin, a rose blooms

The scars remind me of thorns

Things that everyone hate

I love roses

They symbolize romance

And I love, love

But I'm not so sure it loves me anymore

I don't know, maybe it does

It just doesn't seem like it

yellow is a color of happiness.

yellow is when she tells you she loves you

it's when you ask her to marry you

it's when she tells you she's expecting

it's holding your little girl for the first time.

yellow is when your little girl brings her first friend over

when she goes to her first school dance

when she gets her first A on a test

When she gets first chair in band

When she walks across that stage to get the piece of paper that helps decide her fate in life

When she gets accepted into her dream college

Yellow is the color of happiness

Sometimes its brighter than others

But its still there

Still yellow

Still happy

When they wash upon my brain, it numbs

It froze over

Its sitting in an icy prison

At least, thats how I feel


It feels so cold, it's like it's not even there anymore

Cold-hearted...That's what she called me

I want to be free and wild.

For one night.

I want to see what's on the other side

I want to leave everything behind
