... and my skin is begging to be touched,
by the shiny piece of metal,
that takes all the pain away.

Hello, my name is Emma,
and I'm fat. But when I try to eat less and lose weight,
I'm anorexic.

Hello, my name is Emma,
and I'm a dyke for kissing too many women. But when I try to kiss men,
I'm a fake lesbian.

Hello, my name is Emma,
and I'm a slut. But when I tell you that I have only had sex once,
my new nickname is Virgin Mary.

Hello, my name Emma,
and I'm human.

In the society that I live in the perfect human doesn't exist.
I could be doing everything right and I would be boring,
or I could do everything wrong and I would be a failure. Society is never satisfied.
People are trying their hardest but in today's society the hardest,
isn't good enough.
We need to learn to love one another as equal people.
Let them weigh what they weigh,
love who they love,
and sleep with either one person or a thousand people.
We need to accept that people are different but that difference,
is just an opportunity to learn new things about living.

(e.k.j.)

kiss me like your lips are on fire and,
I'm the only bucket of water in the whole world.

(e.k.j.)

I find myself sipping mercury from bottles
I didn’t know I have... Bottles that
only exist
inside my mind so
no one would be able to stop me from poisoning myself.

I slipped up.
I slit cuts.
I didn't mean to.
I drew blood.

I read online
When I was probably just 14 or 15 years old
That most people don't stop until their 20's
And it scared me
But I thought
"No, I'll stop right now"

But I didn't.
I couldn't.

I slipped up.
I slit cuts.
I didn't mean to.
I drew blood.

And now that I'm older
It hurts more to try to hide it
And now that I have people that care about me
Often times they don't understand why this part of my life is still relevant
And all I can say to make them understand is

I slipped up.
I slit cuts.
I just had to.
I drew blood.

My love with you will not only be filled with butterfly kisses and silky grips
But it will also be filled with stingray whips and electric lips,


My love with you will not only be filled with warm sheets and bunny cuddles
But it will also be filled with polar ice cubes and freezing tongue muscles,


My love with you will not only be filled with sugar sweet smiles and jelly joys
But it will also be filled with tear soaked shoulders and confusing conflicts of noise,


My love with you will not only be filled with seven star resorts and ravishing restaurants
But it will also be filled with playing various games and nights of movie hunts,


My love with you will not only be filled with heavenly peace and encouraging each other’s dreams
But it will also be filled with running races and roller coasters of emotion on diverse streets,
,

My love with you will not only be filled with artistic gifts and poetic lines that flutter
But it will also be filled with a collage of master pieces that we have created together for each other.

You are the calming waters that extinguish the fuming fires inside of me
But these fires are also passionate so without them: I'm a honey-less bee.
