Have you ever?

Have you ever wondered why you were put here?

Or why things happen the way they do?

Have you ever noticed that you can see all your veins and scars underwater?

or have you sat in the shower with the water as hot as it can go until it goes cold?

So cold that when you turn it all the water is the same temperature,

Have you ever thought one person was your everything?

Only to find you can live without them just fine,
Have you ever stared at your arm knowing what you want to do but you can't,

And you just breakdown crying,

Have you ever wanted time to stop so you can figure your life out?

Or known what your life is but felt something was wrong,

Have you ever thought that one moment was just so perfect?

Just to realize it was'nt what you thought,

Or figured out it was just as perfect as you thought it was,

Have you ever just wanted to be alone?

but then when you were you wanted someone with you,

Have you ever felt like something was so right yet so wrong?

Have you ever wanted to disappear just to see who would miss you?

Have you ever wanted something that was within your reach yet you knew no one would like?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and just felt like something was missing?

Have you ever fallen in love but been afraid of your future?

Afraid of what was next,

Have you ever wondered what is going through someone elses mind evrytime they look at you?

Have you ever wanted something so bad but known that your too young?

I was just sitting there one day, and it just kind of came to me. I didn't think about it much and just wrote it, I actually hope one day that I can be a real writer.
