Jul 2018
My whole adolescence I had hope
But all my prayers went unanswered
All my dreams faded
Black and white
My childhood wasn’t an art piece
It was broken crayons on my school desk
It was fear
I had no idea what normal was
Chaotic coincidences made up my memories
They burn like having a cigarette put out on your tongue
Terrible brain connections
I hate my memories
I wish I could forget
Wake up from the nightmare of
Begging to be recognized
For forgiveness
I needed you
Needed somebody to see that I was hurting bad
But you were just like the rest
Blind of the truth
Believed the fabricated stories
It’s a word with a bitter taste
You have it, then lose it within a matter of seconds
1 is gained
2’s gone
Snap of a finger
Blink of an eye
My dear friend
I love you like there’s no tomorrow
I adore you
All your perfect imperfections
But love is never an easy emotion
Loving is really a bipolar feeling
Happy one second
Hateful the next
Crying one minute
Laughing the next  
But my friend let me tell you
One little secret
I’ve been thru hell and back
But that little thing called hope
It still keeps me going
