These are short entries dedicated to the pieces of me...

Dear Eyes,
       I'm sorry for all the pain and struggle you've seen. Everything's going to be okay. I promise I won't let you witness any more.

Dear Mind,
       Believe me when I say all those bad memories that mar you will be erased like an etch a sketch, you'll be put to ease soon.

Dear Teeth,
       Please... I beg you, bite back your sobs and cries. You're stronger than that, don't let the barricades decay.

Dear Heart,
       It's okay, stop weeping. This clear imitation of blood you pump through my veins is weakening.

Dear Skin,
       I want to be comfortable in you and I'm trying. Forgive me for wishing I looked like this or that, I'm sorry, I'm trying.

Dear Hands,
       I'm sorry I'm depending on you to keep me together just please hold on a little longer.

Dear Words,
       Stop trying to fool everyone, if you're hurting let them know.

Dear Me,
       I'm done holding in all this caged pain.... open the gates and set it free.
