I looked through my bookshelves today
and found
your face
To Kill a Mocking Bird
the scars from when I cut my wrists
the color of her hair
i wish
the world lived away
from the inside of my head
and that i
could be blissfully empty
and not see their eyes
every time i close mine

im sorry to say that since i have no read To Kill a Mockingbird i did not quite under stand the referense

Nevertheless i think this is wonderfully written and has strong emotion behind it. From "i wish..." to the end was jus perfect /5
