    Hey. Slow down. Take a seat. I have something to say to you. Dear the abandoner, I look at you in the hallways Everyday walking to math class. I think about before the makeup And heels and miniskirts. Do you even remember my name? Let alone the make believe games, Harry Potter, Nancy ...

    Have you ever felt alone in the group? Ever convinced yourself 'Hey, life is fine! Why wouldn't it be?' Waking up sobbing For reasons you're not sure of. Although you feel like you should know. 'Why am I such a stranger to myself?' On the outside looking in. Ma...

    I could tell you that I'm fine When you look me in the eye And ask if I'm alright But it would be a lie I could claim not to be Hurting inside When you glimpse my reddened eyes And it's clear to you I've cried I could pretend to be normal When it's hard to stop ...

    What I get I fell asleep on the bus Passed my stop and a few Forgot the flowers at the station But that’s what I get for trying The house keys jingle in my pocket They don’t open the right door Only a place to stay But that’s what I get for hoping Surrounded by memories of you and...

    Barefoot Spinning On the broken window And sealed envelopes That will never be shipped It’s a kaleidoscope, after all Of shattered glass And blood stained ‘I love you’s Words not said And now too late Regrets we shove to the bottom of our closets Never to be seen again Until it’s...

    You used to be a butterfly I can tell In the way you leaped From rock to rock Along the beach You used to be a bird I can tell In the way you sang Under the stars Stretched out in the grassy field You used to be a maple seed I can tell in the way you twirled and spun Across the sand...

    The words swirl around me Like snowflakes In a blizzard I reach out to grab one A word A snowflake It’s delicate Like an orchid Crumbles Melts In my hands I can see words Hear them Taste them Feel them Catch them on my tongue But when I reach out To take one Out of the swirl...
