Favorite Quote:
There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion.
- Edgar Allan Poe


I've been passive,
Submissive,
Beaten and broken.
But I'm done, I’m fighting back.
I'm not your puppet.
Not anymore.

You can't get to me.
You don't have that hold on me
You've had it for so long
(YOU’VE GOTTA LET IT GO, BABY.)
I don't have those feelings for you.
Not anymore.
I’ve moved up.
(YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE WALKED AWAY.)

Oh, let me explain,
But no, you wouldn’t listen anyway.
Always so quick to act
And not so quick to think.
So what’s the point in fighting?
(YOU’LL NEVER LISTEN TO A SINGLE WORD I SAY)
Lets see what you've got, baby.
(I’M READY TO GO, BABY.)

Knock me down,
Watch me get back up.
(HIT ME AGAIN, BABY. JUST TRY TO GET ME ON MY KNEES.)
Nothing you do can get to me.
You've lost your hold.
You’ve lost your your edge.
(YOU’RE LIKE A DULL KNIFE, BABY. YOU’RE F*CKING USELESS.)

You're nothing now that I can see
Who you really are,
What you pretended to be,
And everything you've done to hurt me
(IT USED TO KILL ME, BABY.)
Has been in vain.
(YOU CAN’T F*CKING TOUCH ME.)

The stars don’t shine, no, not for you.
What you see are the fires of Hell,
Desperately awaiting our collision
And your downfall in inevitable.
(PREPARE YOURSELF, SWEETHEART. THERE’S GONNA BE AN EXPLOSION.)

This was written when I was 17. It's obviously for an ex boyfriend, but it's one of my favorite pieces so far. Anything in parenthesis is supposed to be screaming. Go easy on me, it's my first submission :P haha
