my mind is a war zone, my body’s shackled to depression
get to know me if you want to but use your discretion
i’ll push you far away and then i’ll beg for your attention-
i’ll convince us both it’s love though you’re merely a projection.

Jake A Smith Oct 9

You invited me in your life when you were young and alone
You were just like a dog
Always chewing that bone
But you and I became one, when you'd sit there and stare at your phone
And started writing about the pain that you felt
About the way your dad would beat you with his belt
Then you started writing about your first and last ex
And how all of your friends never respond to your texts
You're doing things you shouldn't be, to try to get some attention
Posting your writings online
Trying to get some affection
Imma keep you in this cell forever, Jake
I'm the only thing that's real to you
Everything else is a fake


Yeah, I invited you in my life, but I guess I don't really need you no more
I'm getting tired
My emotions can't put up with you, anymore.
So, I'm opening the door and kicking you out
All the voices in my head, I've been fighting them out
I wrote " Friend " without you and it's never been better
You got settled in thinking I'd need you forever
Now you can't handle me, I've been skipping our therapy
I'm the head of the hierarchy
And you made me think less of me
So, I think it's time that I let you know that
It's over

Jake, I've been there with you through all of your pain
Through all of the times you'd get hurt again, again.
And after each time, you ain't ever gone back to being the same
Yeah, I know you ain't ever left my side, but it's time that I bury you
My writings ain't the same no more, they're becoming something new
Something just for a select few
Something for someone to relate to
I already know there will be a lot of hate to it, too.
But the haters don't even matter, cause they're not important
Focus on the ones that always been supportive.

Trying something new, might not be as good.

Blade grazes skin in horizontal hatred
teaching lessons in guilt and lies
crying truth that won't break the surface
which hides the tar that seeps
through a soul unseen

Prtty, Prtty smile
on a Prtty, Prtty girl

and the lines break surface tension
'twas all the glue would hold

Every turn a reflection in karma and self-loathing
perceived as an undeserved consequence
of a past that holds no regrets

One layer breaks free
and he fails to see her cracks
through the scars he was forced to stitch alone
with the rusted skewers of time

A second pass and the blade runs clean
as idle threats yield no change
a liar demanding truth of the one who gives it freely
as it has always been

Only seeing lies oneself would tell
unable and unwilling to realize
that the truth remains true
even when seen through one's own lies

Beaten into submission
that reeks of forced pity
only covers the truth
with lies that make one feel like

A Prtty, Prtty girl
with a Prtty, Prtty smile

What safer place is there
To solicit prostitution
Than a Grocery Store?
The Police aren’t there
To stop women from selling their bodies
They’re there
To stop people from stealing food.
Her severely cut down
Cutoffs
Left  little to the imagination,
And the view from the backside
Was even more openly
Exposed,
However,
The facial features are obscured.
By whitish makeup
The young woman didn’t have a mean look,
But she seemed almost dollish.
If one tapped this young lady’s shoulder
To ask her,
“How much?”
She might think that you’re confused
About the price of apples
Or she might give you a quote
For her hourly rates.

Drowning.
Drowning in silence.
I'm lost.
So terribly Lost.
In a crowd of people
I feel like nothing more than just a ghost.

You're oblivious.
Oblivious to me.

Help.
Help me.
Help me to help you.
What do I have to do?

Strip.
Strip the sheet.
Bare my soul to you?
Not good enough.
Probably.

Body.
Fine.
That's not mine.

Stay.
Stay anyway.
I know I'm not a 10.
But my arms are open.

Attention.
Attention.
Please look at me.
Help me.
Let me help you.

Sigh.
Fine.
Nevermind.
I tried anyway.

I will not fall to my knees and beg for your attention, but I'll gladly get on them and show you some of mine.

Literally had this line running through my head so I figured I'd share.
Remmy Sep 16

Why can't you hear me
Why won't you listen
Why won't you pay attention to me
Why do you ignore me
Why do you hate me
Why do you despise me
Why do you love me
Why do you care so much
Why do you want me to stay alive
Why do ignore me
Why do you not care enough about me
Why don't you pay attention to me

I opened the box and the cat is, in fact, dead
It died while we were all scratching our heads

We killed something small because we think
Our thoughts are more important than something that breathes

Maybe it’s easier to keep the box closed
Because then it’s alive, as far as we know.

Everything’s fine, long as you don’t look
We keep our eyes closed so we stay off the hook.

not-so-subtle fuck you to parents/family/friends that ignore when someone has a problem so that they can keep thinking everything is fine

I’m sorry
I’m sorry I pay attention to your wrists
But I do it because you’re beautiful and unbroken and I want the whole world to know
I want everyone too see how beautiful your skin is that your mother and father made, and how perfectly imperfect it is

I’m sorry I pay attention to your wrists
But I do it because I’m scared and worried that I won’t be able to protect you more than a knife ever did
I want you to know how loved you are and how you’re one of the best people I’ve ever met

I’m sorry I pay attention to your wrists
But I do it because I never want you to ever be hurt again; by other people or yourself
I want you to know how strong you are, and that no matter who hurts you, I believe you can pull through because you’re amazing

I’m sorry I pay attention to your wrists
But I do it because every single scar reminds me how I was too late
I wanted to be there more and even now, I continue to miss you and worry constantly, fearing that you’ll disappear from my life and I won’t be able to be a better friend

I’m sorry
I’m sorry I pay attention to your wrists
I don’t mean to do it to draw people’s attention
I know you’ve gotten enough of that already
Quick glances or long stares
I just want you to know
I’m here
And
I
Care

Did I ever get a chance to tell you sorry after our last meeting.
I was mad at the world for a reason because they gave up on me.
Staring at a wall for two hours , talking for two hours.
no time to comfort souls and their retreat to sorrow , bet it got sour.
Despise you , you , you , you,
but you hate, me , me , me ,me,
But everything about you , you , you , you,
Is based off greed , greed , green , green,
And I don't follow.
I disowned you , you , you , too.
to hear those lies , lies , lies , lies,
when you walk the door , door , door , door,
I see no fear , fear , fear , fear,
from you anymore , more , more , more,
I feel bad for you.
Doesn't have nothing to do with me , me , me , me.

Did you ever take the time to consider what I Wanted for myself.
darkness falls , and all you got is your pride and courage without a wealth.
And now I'm angry at myself for two hours , pacing for two hours.
I need my soul comforted for some love in the next hour.

Despise you , you , you , you,
but you hate, me , me , me ,me,
But everything about you , you , you , you,
Is based off greed , greed , green , green,
And I don't follow.
I disowned you , you , you , too.
to hear those lies , lies , lies , lies,
when you walk the door , door , door , door,
I see no fear , fear , fear , fear,
from you anymore , more , more , more,
I feel bad for you.
