I can’t satisfy your lust for a love story.
I can seduce your heart with a hate story.

Sorry, I won’t be able to satisfy your lust for a love story.
I can seduce your heart with a hate story.
A descent into darkness, I was all alone.
Scared, cold and the worst part – everything,
I felt helpless, useless and broken.
The simplest things felt like a marathon.
I went from being unable to breathe to
wishing that was my last breath.
I lost count of how many times I was ready
to walk away. I wanted to die.
Smile? I choked on voiceless screams.
Laugh? I couldn’t feel a single damn thing.
Cry? Can you imagine how sad it is to miss yourself?
I desperately wanted to feel okay.

I wasn’t.
Wish I knew that it was okay to not be okay.

I’m not:

Knotted and gnarly
Alive, regretfully
The biggest lie I’ve ever told
loving you is more like a void inside my chest
and less like the sweet musings you have put to rest.
leaving you is more like a present i did not know i would like
and less like the tears i try to fight.

i did not know letting you go was going to be good for me
or that letting you in was going to be bad
in the moment, leaving you behind seemed like the worst thing to me
but like vines the idea grew on me
until you were no longer the one thing i believed i would always need.
kissing you was fatal
i did it too often
touching you was okay though
although my lungs still screamed caution.
i gave you up when i realized i was fully capable of doing so
i gave you up when i realized you would not even try to fight
for me for me for you for us for me
and probably the best thing i have ever done for myself
is let you go before you dragged me with you on your fairy ride to hell.

loving me is more like a void inside your chest
and less like the sweet musings i have put to rest.
leaving me is more like a present you did not know you would like
and less like the tears you try to fight.
i wish you could be replaced as easily as you replaced me

You waste away your day you say
And I will tell you "it's okay"
It's okay to be lazy
(If it doesn't drive you crazy)
Do something that makes you proud
If that means to shrug off the shroud
Then give that shroud a good'n tug
Go outside and unplug
Know that the initial leap is the hardest
Take that chance, try your darnedest
And soon you may come to find
Though we try to occupy the mind
That waste away we all must do
How it happens is up to you
Even the sky at times is blue.
I wrote this one for my sister. There is an extra line that's more of a joke referencing the "I'm blue meme." But I decided to leave it out here.

It isn't about saying its okay...

It isn't even about being okay,

But about telling them that you aren't,

But will be fine...


We all will be...

Wolves gnawing at my stomach
With every move and twist of my body
Burning me inside

I want to eat
I need to eat
But I can’t
When I do
Just a bite

One swallow
I feel full
It’s an empty full
Then I puke
It all comes out

Gross acidic taste
The wolves keep eating me from the inside out
Lightheaded and dizzy
Am I okay?
I’m lost in the stomach
Anorexia. Oof. My demon. I haven’t been affected that much but a few months ago it was pretty bad. My mom and friends parents always said Sweetheart your so thin. That made me really sad because I was still called fat face because of my faces bone structure of being round... no matter how skinny I was my face stayed the same.

It’s okay.
It’s okay that you constantly
Ignore me, never text me,
Purposely refuse to answer my phone calls.
It’s okay that I spend my nights in tears,
Trying to fathom your motives,
Never finding solace in sleep.
It’s okay that you never listen to me
When I speak, that you always
Cancel our plans,
That you don’t seem to care about me
It’s okay.
I guess I was never good enough.

Please tell me friend
What way I did wrong
Our fantastic friendship didn't
Last for very long

I am sorry I hurt you
With whatever I said or did
I apologize for not
Noticing what you hid

Can you forgive me?
Do not cry anymore
I hate to see your tears
And not know what they're for

Say you are joking
Do not ignore me today
Can't live without you
Alone I'm not okay

Don’t try to blame it on an anxious mind
You’re doing so good, honey.
Yes, you’re doing fine.
And for the first time in a long, long time you’re mine.
A reminder to myself and others that sometimes you have a toxic mind, but poison has an antidote and you’ll be okay in the end. Like I heard the other day, “If it’s not okay, it’s not the end!”

I guess
after all
we are all afraid
of the depths

being pulled under
into darkness
by the force
of tides

without any rescue

and I guess safety
is found in the
eyes of your lover
as you find
they are the thing
pulling you down
in to their arms
— in to love.
