There's love in this hate
Passion in the flames
I'll be the monster that hurts you,
The lover of your desires
And you the change that makes me better
To be the guardian and swear to protect you,
Shield you and have you as mine
There's others that deserve you
Your sweet eyes and caring soul
But no one will love as strong as I
We tear down the castle walls
Storm the castle and conquer our siege
Oh of course, darling,
I still love you,
Though you're in his arms instead of mine

Come one come all to the darling show
As a small girl swings to and fro
Back and forth through the inky sea
And lights to bright for her to see
Making a mockery of herself
A disgusting creature is she

Oh how I hate the circus trapeze
The swinging brings me to my knees
My costume flutters as I glide
With my monster that I must hide
Clawing away at my frozen lungs
And tearing me up inside

If I did love
Told you I loved you
That'd I'd be there for as long
as you want me
Would you let me
Or hurt me?

every step i take
my soul and body ache

and still
i hope
that by the end of the day

i will feel love
instead of hate
in all the pain
as if new life
rushes through my veins

because i'm human
which no longer means

i fall down
get up
and grow old
die young
to be proud
what i've done

it was a long way
and i took different paths
to form myself
how i am, act and love

but just as hurt
has a domino effect
so does healing

which i discovered
to be
Slow grasp growing,
Reaching for your radiance.
Once ardently awake,
My long forgotten limbs rest.

Wishing for vibrant verdant.
Instead of brown winter bramble.
Barren is the reluctant grape vine,
that awaits spring showers.
My hesitance had ruined it all.
I can't remember the way you felt against my skin.
I'm only human,
so don't ask me
to be perfect.

I'm only human,
so don't ask me
to be everywhere at once.

I'm only human,
so don't
Failing at what I thought I could be great at.
This feeling of losing at life and brokenness leaves me in the shadows.  
Come save me.
Hold on to me.
And don't let me fall into my old ways.
What are you doing?
What the **** are you doing?
Why don’t you just wanna die?
Why are you living even?
Why are you occupying space?
Why are you wasting oxygen?
Why don’t you just die?
Why don’t you
Please die.
I beg you.
Please die.
No one wants you here.
No one cares about you.
No one would notice if you just die and get it over with.
You don’t have an inkling of effect on this world.
Jump off the balcony.
Cut your wrists.
Hang from the fan.
Do anything but do something.
Get it over with.
It won’t hurt, I promise you.
It’s okay.
It’s okay.
You tried I know.
But please
Please die.

i walked in,
found him laying on the floor
wearing jeans and a sweater,
and he was shivering.
it was July.
i never understood anything
until that moment
