    I'm gasping for breath But I'm inhaling your sighs And I'm tripping over my own feet Running to say goodbye Am I in love? How can I even answer that question? I hardly understand the meaning Is love a thing of the past or the present? I'm falling Straight into the ...

    When I come down from this high This high cloud of transcendent pain This high that only leads to low crawls Only your smile can catch me midway Midway through my fall Catching a breath isn't an easy thing to do When your oxygen supply is running low Or is it running away? Because I k...

    Your love outruns me I can chase for as long and fast as I can go But someday the road will end And what do you expect? For me not to lose hope? I don't need to understand I'm not even so sure I want to But tell me, if I never stop thinking about you Will that cause fate to sway?...

    I can stare at the blank page But nothing is written down What's in my heart Is always drowned I smoked the cigarette Just to see if Id get addicted When I did I was not surprised I became the afflicted (CHORUS) I'm not surprised by my own downfalls It's when thin...

    Have you ever heard the wind blow softly? Have you ever heard someone cry alone? Have you ever witnessed A random act of kindness? And thought to yourself I am loved? (chorus) You're imagining the darkness Trapping yourself for no reason Because you haven't yet Accepted reali...

    A little cafe A big old place A lost city And your lonely face Try to find comfort In the little things Like the rustle of newspaper Or scent of coffee beans And maybe for a week I see the hope in things But then your face flashes in the crowd And my heart no longer sings Breathin...

    I was shown pretty blouses. As soon as I could walk, I marched straight to the boys' clothing section of Target with a huge grin slapped across my face. I was shown long hair. When I was seven, I cut off as much of my straight blonde hair as my mother permitted. I was told my name was Teresa. I...

    I have been intimidated my whole life. When I was five years old, I screamed bloody murder whenever our kittens crossed my path. A running joke my uncle loves to tell to embarrass me involves me climbing up my father as quickly as possible in order to get away from Lefty, one of my uncle's very...

    Eyes glistening Our tears fall Not out of fearfulness, but From the shear amazement of it all The acceptance The community The happiness The unity Everybody's smiling They have found their home A place they may be themselves And not be shunned or alone But then there's y...

    It is a drug. It is addicting. I take pleasure in seeing the blood, the dark crimson contrasted against my soft, clean skin. I like the VISIBLE marks I leave. I do not have to keep my thoughts invisible, locked up inside of me until the next panic attack. I can simply write it all down on my ski...

    I'm exposed My skin can be seen My body examined Harshly critiqued They judge with their gazes Opinions intrude and detect Their stares devour me Their eyes inspect Where is my cover? My secret hideout? My safe haven? A place with no doubt? Is my skin too white? Does my stoma...

    I can see I can hear Only evil laughter Only tears Alone at night Staring at the dark Deciding if life Is worth living or not I can feel Wind on my face As I stand on the brink What will they think? If they look down And find me lying on the ground I can’t see I can’t hear...

    I like to fall asleep So that voice will let me be And when the shadows are no more It’s only me knocking on my door When the darkness turns to light That voice begins to talk inside That voice controls me It can’t be stopped So I stay Locked up Locked up Locked up My own eye...

    There’s depth to the game The game of torture The game of pain It’s an endless path No one but you walk down You travel alone Forever The shadows fade Emotions are meaningless Because you don’t feel You only walk It’s part of the game The game of torture The game of pain ...

    Home alone Again Trying to get out But keep rejecting my friends I should just leave forever Never come back It won’t make a difference Everyone expects that Walking down a long, dark hall Everything feeling so empty I trip My face goes into the wall Next time I think it’d be safer...

    I can see the horizon And the yellow sun beyond I can see the rain Though it falls too far away I can see the happiness As it lights up your face I feel the eyes staring When I runaway The evil thoughts have been slain There is no more pain Your fingers wrap around mine You pull me into...

    My own mind is screaming at me My conscience won’t respond God is not answering What the hell is wrong? The light is burning too bright Memories show no mercy Images throw themselves at me Where are my feet? Shadows distorted on the wall Confuse me, make me fall Flower pedals shed to...

    I sit. I sleep. I drink water. I walk in circles. I wonder. I sleep. I cry. I write. I watch the clock. I watch other people do things. I sit. I watch T.V. I read about drugs. I like drugs. I take drugs. I like drugs. I take more drugs. I start to scratch myself. I won't sto...

    Take a glass out. The usual glass, the only thing in the cupboard. Set it on the table. Open the freezer. Feel the chilled bottle stick to warm skin. Set it on the table. Pull out the wooden kitchen chair. The one with crayon marks on the legs where some child scribbled on it years ago. Sit...

    Paint the smile on. Tape it on. Staple it on. Use permanent glue. This is the only way you will ever smile. Brush your hair. Straighten it. Curl it. Blow dry it. Do what you need to do in order to hide behind this appearance. Hide behind this closed door. Under your hood. Keep your hand over ...
