"I sound like a cliche and smell like cheap alcohol. My hair is nearly always a mess and I feel awkward in my skin. I know what I want; it's getting it that confuses me sometimes" - NotJaneToday


No wonder my heart is so easy to bruise
it's only protected by bits
of bone and tissue
but even if i could cage my heart with steel
to keep you and everyone else out
i wouldn't because i rather
sew my eyelids shut with eyelashes than
to never feel heartbreak again because
it's better to be blind than
to be broken and love
can heal the open
heart.
