Sometimes I wake up with tears in my eyes
and I don't remember why

Sometimes I want you to tell me I'm good to you
but you never do

I guess I'm just there, floating and spilling
into your edges, like ink in water
staining them with colors that you don't like

Sometimes I chip away at myself until I fit into you
and I don't know why

Sometimes I count the stars
and wonder, if I had one for every scar,
would I light up bright and beautiful

I try to burn all bridges
I don't want you to see
the blues ghosting in my eyes
or the dark rings 'round my eyes

but sometimes all I want
is to be found by you

The imagry is sad in a beautiful way. This definitely deserved to be in the magazine.
