I need to live
I want to die
I strive to communicate
I long to cry
Please accept me
For everything I am
I want you to hate me
For in the end I won't land
I'll fall so far
Completely tumble and wipe out
To the greatest of all darkness
I want you to know that
This life? I don't want this
I think I love you
I know I hate you
I have to pretend
When real is all I strive for
I want to stay frozen
Yet I continue to thrive in fire
I want to remain hidden
In the darkest of all desires
I think I might be insane
Yet I fear I'm freakishly normal
No, I've thought about it
And honestly?
I'm crazy.

Ok, I've been on this site for... I don't know, several months. And I've read way too many articles. But I've only favorited one other piece, before this one. It was so perfect. It was so breathtaking and so honestly real. I kind of saw the method to your madness in this piece, and I guess I'm a bit crazy myself! Haha, good job. I loved it.

If you ever get the chance to check out my work, I would greatly appreciate it.
