I am in the personal belief that
making myself someone different
will make more people enjoy yours truly
However, will it really?

the only movement I feel in myself is my
(***** for circulating blood)
little drummer man in my chest
keeping me alive
social anxiety is exhausting.
Fae Sep 2015
the silence makes me shake
smooth out the wrinkles on the red velvet tablecloth
pushing out all the crinkles i made
his text interrupts the flicker of the melting candles
i'm sorry, i'm sorry
baby, i don't want this to be real

so i sit in a stiff chair, in the breezy balmy evening
watch the curtains flutter
wishing the buzz of my cell phone
was a knock at my door
