life was when you hit rock bottom
then you finally knew who was there for you
life was when you cried to sleep because everything just seems so wrong
then you finally knew who was there for you
life was when the whole world turned its back on you
then you finally knew, all along, the person that was there for you—was you

that, is life
Do you think they know?
Everyday I have to force myself to believe that I am happy.

Do you think they know?
I have to mask up my pain with a smile.

Do you think they know?
All I wanted was to feel that I belonged.

Do you think they know?
People like me are not always okay.

Do you think they know?
I was never okay.

Do you think they know?
Do you think they care?
Do you think they think of me too?

“No, they don’t.”
I thought so too.
life has been hard enough already
you’re complete and then you’re alone
an unending cycle you wish you could run from
the world has turned its back on you
maybe you should too
a time machine to the past is nothing but a suicide
at some point, we all need to stop coming back
we already died a thousand deaths
let's not die a thousand more
when im around you
i can see why the ocean is endless
and why people love the horizon
i can see why waves are always attached to feelings—
crashing into our very soul

when im around you
i understand why i love the ocean—
and why i feel like it loves me back
i tried to go to the places you and i used to go
but you weren't there
so i went to the places you and i didn't
still, you weren't there

now, i'm in a place i am no longer familiar with

at last
in the place where i felt lost---
i found you
---and i thought that along every tear
that escaped from my eyes
was every ounce of love i had for you
but i was wrong

it never escaped from me---
and i never escaped from it either
