you’re the kerosene that keeps me aflame

yet after all this fire i always end up feeling numb
i’m so tired of being numb

while cleaning my room
i found one of your notes on the floor
i decided to read it
and then i realized
losing you didn’t hurt anymore
i burned all the others

thoughts full
of jagged lines
scarlet drops
crystal tears
red stained bandages
hidden pain
smeared makeup
tubes of healing creams
red stained hands
red drops on porcelain sinks
spotty vision
haggard breaths
shaking limbs
stinging pain
i just want them to go away

who told you that you could keep breaking my heart after it was already broken?

who gave you that right. because i’m certain it wasn’t me.

he tells me
that i’m good
i’m important
i’m loved

she tells me
that i’m kind
i’m funny
i’m sweet

he tells me
that i’m amazing
i'm beautiful
i’m understanding

they all tell me
that i’m easy to love
easy to want
easy to know

i tell myself
that i’m annoying
i’m too much
i’m hard to love

i don’t understand why i can’t see what they see

for someone who feels so much
you make it look effortless to feel nothing
