You have no idea what this feels like.
No idea. At. All.
"What's it like?" they ask.

She raises her heavy head from her arms, crossed on the table. Trembling so violently, her tears shudder as they slide down her cheeks. Her hands are small and ******, her feet numb, and cold as ice, though still somehow managing to shake too.

"Like living and dying simultaneously. It's agony," she replies.

Scratching at my skin
Banging on the walls
Tiptoeing across this wire of tension
Never knowing when I'll trip
And fall

You may as well chain me up. It would feel just the same.

I can't fight these voices
Anymore
Hearing the footsteps coming
Down the hall
My phone ringing
In the next room
But there's no missed calls

I can't fight myself
Any longer
Seeing your figure
In the corner
You make me hurt
You make me hurt myself
Just GO AWAY

I can't fight you
Anymore
Just **** me
Like you've threatened to
So many times
I can't express the pain
In a rhyme
I can't

I gave in
To your commands
I'm not a bad person I promise
Just a weak one

it must feel good to wallow
in the shallow waters of
ignorance

You said you'd never let me go
My trust grew from the seeds you'd sewn
I watched our friendship bloom and grow
Beautifully imperfect

You said you'd never watch me fall
I stumbled; you were standing tall
You came to my beckon call
Manufactured perfect

for your love was of a different kind
But so were the scars you left behind
Dear lord, I know I'll never find
A way to heal these scars of a different kind


When you left, the darkness began to close in
The unbearable weight of my confusion and sin
You were my stronghold, my family, my kin
Now broken, what once was perfect

for your love was of a different kind
But so were the scars you left behind
Dear lord, I know I'll never find
A way to heal these scars of a different kind


Now 5 months on, and I'm still in pain
As I look out at the pouring rain
Your lack of love has driven me insane
I have destroyed the perfect

for your love was of a different kind
But so were the scars you left behind
Dear lord, I know I'll never find
A way to heal these scars of a different kind


Dear lord, I beg you, let me find
A way to heal these scars, of
A different kind
