it's so easy to talk about loneliness and pain to romanticize all of these things that i've been feeling and throw in rhymes here and there
but how do i get myself out of this mess? how do you fall in love when you're so uncomfortable with yourself?
it's 5 am again and all i can think of is how quickly my fingers hover over the keys and there are people rising but i still cannot sleep
i am engulfed in sad songs and books and the quotes in those books that tell me more about myself than i ever can
(sometimes i wish some dead poets were my friends and then sometimes i wish i could put on a mask and masquerade around as another person, as a stranger even to myself i feel like i'd be more comfortable then)
tell me, what does it feel like to fall in love? does it feel like electricity crawling up and down your spine, like warm fuzzy feelings swirling in your stomach like wine? and does it last? or do people just pretend? will i ever find love? or will i be all alone in the end?
