Despite the screaming in my head,
The tears in my eyes
"I'm fine..."
Is what I said
"I'll be there in a few minutes..."
Then I put down the phone
And ran into the street
My suicide
"An accident" they'll say
The perfect plan.

The average person lies four times a day,
The most common lie is
"I'm fine"

I nvisible

It's fine
I mean it when I say,
That everything's fine
Even if I'm slowly losing my mind
I'm fine
You can believe me or not
But I'd like to say one more time
That I'm fine

It's right
Nothing better than this
Optimistic lunacy
In the face of cold misery
Dead friends
While they drink themselves to life
Smiles ten miles wide
But I know that it's alright

Break backs
Trying make them take me back
Send love but it's never enough
I guess I'm alright with that
Send notes
Written in calligraphy
All the words read perfectly
Crying out to come back to me

I'm fine
Please believe me when I lie
Straight to your worried eye
That I will be just fine
Take time
I smile when I hear the words
Please, say that you're alright
Even when I don't know what it's like
The difference between actions and habits, is often measured by the person you're asking.  
One bump, one line, one half ounce... All shared by people you don't even give a **** about.

These chemicals make me sick --
Limitless...Why quit?
When it's only ten bucks for a hit like this?
Even Jesus Christ would have gotten addicted, if drugs in his day were half this good.

"Yeah, I'm smashed -- but I promise I can drive fine."
Walk and push the limits of a real fine line...
If I don't **** myself, or someone else... I'm happy.
Stare death in his eyes, wink, and start laughing.

Gasping as I swerve lanes --
Stay safe, get paid. Mundane daily.
Living a-live.. Eat. Sleep. Dream. Get laid.  
Chase feelings.

           Please, just feel me now.
                                    You know me, right?

           Please, just feel me now.
                                    You love me, right?

I want to melt with you -- let our souls collide...
Dissolve the boundaries between students and teachers.
To bridge the gap in the great divide
No secrets between us -- bleed into the speakers.

Feel the air in your chest, and ask *** for a reason...
To stay or leave Him.
He makes excuses...

                                                     ­                        ... Believe Him.

I had coffee and a cigarette for breakfast
So yeah I'm doing fine
I've become good at taking weight off of other peoples shoulders
Searching for happiness in everything
You keep saying everything's fine,
But honestly I don't believe you.

I've been betrayed over and over again,
And set aside by those whom I thought friends.
I've been judged for being me;
and for wanting company.
I've changed my ways and habits to be to their likeness. They in turn spit in my face.

I've been forgotten by those who I thought of as equals, as true friends, maybe even family.
And yet I'm here thinking about those who have wronged me, asking myself what I did  to deserve this.

I've been declared guilty, guilty by association. Bound to be forgotten and never spoken to.

And all of this because, I was innocently honest about one tiny thing,
That turned out to be massive in the eyes of mummy's boy.

Everything is fine
except the fact that I have a war going on in this head of mine.
I'm tired and afraid of these thoughts in my head,
all I wanna know is when all of this is going to end.
There is a fine line between love and hate.

You push me off the highest cliff and laugh at my fall- but I will love you.
You take my paralysed body and stab it 666 times- and my love seems to bleed all the more.
You put plasters on my stab wounds and whisper that it’s going to be okay- and my love for you expands
You cover me in oil
And then you light my body on fire- my love burns and grows into flames.
My body disintegrates into tiny pieces of dust and every piece still loves you.

But then you simply step on my ashes. You take a handful, and sprinkle them.
And now my love is cold
so cold that it feels like hate

A step too far.
The fine line
The smallest push over the edge

Now I don’t care, as the wind picks up my ashes and takes me into the air.

I used to fly. I was beautifully free; a bluebird soaring, floating, singing

And now I fly again; out of the darkness and into the distance.

If one day you choose to fly and we pass the same piece of sky; admire my wings

but please don’t take them away-
Not again, not today.

Fresh heartache - nothing makes u feel so alive
Yet so close to death at the very same time
Jaycee Oct 2014
Heart sinking.
Lips trembling.
Tears falling.
Thoughts crumbling.

Friends happy.
Parents crazy.
Siblings laughing.
You crying.

Heart ache.
Lips shake.
Tears soak.
Thoughts loath.

Eyes tired,
Mind fired.
Life is quiet,
Feelings riot.
