Favorite Quote:
"I guess today my dream became my disease."

Lie to yourself
Tell yourself that they actually care
But caring gets you nowhere,
So they don’t

Lie to yourself
Say that someone will be there when you go home,
That you won’t be alone

Take the blade

Slice your worries into ribbons

Lie to yourself
Say that the blood isn’t real,
That the cuts make you prettier,
Say that “Just one more cut” is the truth

Lie to yourself
Say that depression doesn’t hurt,
That it’s not the most unbearable feeling

Lie to yourself
Say that your parents are just busy,
That they aren’t ignoring you,
That when they call you names is just their sense of humor

Look in the mirror

Look into the eyes that are filled with sadness and despair

Lie to yourself
Tell yourself that the girl you’re looking at……..
Isn’t you
