She was there.


I'm out with some friends., we find a spot on a hill, I know some of the people, I don't know some of the people.

I'm there having a good time. Trying to make conversation, not seeming like a complete loner loser.

I make due with what social skills I have left.


The fireworks have started, sparks of colour fill the sky and loud exploding noises fill my ears.

It's so dark out.
I watched the sunset not too long ago...

The sounds, the exploding bursts of shimmer and shine.

The fireworks are so vibrant, so alive...
I don't feel scared to die right now...

Maybe I should, but I don't.


I found my car and the parking lot is filled with people trying to get out. I grab a map and sit on the trunk of my car as I wait for an opening.

The night is calm if you don't pay mind to the drivers.
And I don't, I just stare at the map, searching for a way home.


I made it home about 10 minutes ago and I'm not tired yet.
I make myself a cup of hot chocolate and sit at my computer watching episodes of an old sitcom from a time I didn't live in.


I'm here.
Lying in my bed, next to nothing and no one.
It was only hours ago that I didn't feel so scared.
And now I'm here.

She wasn't there was she?
She couldn't have been...
If she was, I couldn't possibly have...

She was there.*

She was.

Our paths just missed each other.
Never crossing.

Just hours ago, I was watching fireworks.

And now I'm here.

Watching the darkness.
Celebrate the sky, light it up.

Every night, I'm always sleep with a smile
Ready to seeing you in my dream
You just look fine, but you didn't show your smile
Is that signal you broke inside?
I don't know
Trying to cheer you up
And you crying, sob on my shoulder
Glad with you on my caress
Then I close my eyes
Just wanna obsess yours

I know you wasn't real
But I'm waiting
For you and your thoughts.

It is when I look at you
or just the memory of you
The universe seems
to have shifted
And I died.

Have you ever felt trapped?
It doesn't need to be literal
That dark suffocating feeling
Like you're being dragged down

You struggle everyday
You cry every night
And it feels like
People are pulling you down even more

Will you give me a chance?
Will you listen to a stranger's advice?
I may not love you
but I know you're amazing

Eventually you'll understand
Giving up now,
Is a waste of time
So, live another day, please?

Should we continue playing?
The game of life
Where the challenge is to survive another day
Until you reach the goal

The goal,
Having a satisfied you
If I'm not giving up on you
Then, you can't give up on yourself

My hands are too small
I can't catch all of your pain
I wish I could save you from yourself
But I am not strong enough
To beat the darker parts of you
And the lighter parts of you
Are no match for your inner demons
But God I wish I could take your pain
And bear your burdens for you
I promise you though
You are a candle
Candles flicker
But they always flicker back to shining
There's no sense in blowing out a candle
Just because it is flickering
It will be okay.
You don't need to be strong,  just be brave.
