    i have felt every emotion i can think of, but i know that i can feel more. i am simultaneously trying to avoid this and embrace it, in the way that i will drink the contents of every bottle in sight, so that i will not get the urge to do so when i am alone at night. sometimes i feel them a...

    i am singing your favorite song in my head as i walk through the hallways of a school i don’t want to be in. i am thinking of you the way i always do and i am thinking of how weird everything is. i kinda like the way i have random insight on life in the middle of another shallow thought, ...

    “tragic,” they say, of this very day, with their romantic notions of suicide. their poetic ideals - let them know how it feels to want to drown your lungs in cyanide. you are their queen, clean and pristine with the stain of death on your shoulders. dressed in black, they mourn ...

    My love for you was scientific; I always liked art more. But you see, I think I get it now: you mix some reactants, get an explosion, and this is supposed to be good. Well babe, I mixed all my love and my hate, and bottled it up with some regret. You accidentally drank it, not knowing i...

    they say you start dying the day you were born, so maybe that’s proof that life is meaningless, in the way that words are when slurred with heavy tongues as a result of too much alcohol flooding your lungs. I guess we live in the same way I give myself scars: knowing one day, it’ll all...

    what more do you want from me? maybe I should scream “I LOVE YOU” from the top of some rooftops - would you listen to me, then? should I write it in the sky, for everyone to see - maybe then, you won’t think it’s a lie. (I just don’t know what else to try.) (or would it be mor...

    I woke up trying to rip out my hair, again, in the same way I ripped up all the letters you sent me. I knocked down the jewelry box, the one that contains every last necklace you ever bought me, and no, I do not feel better. All I want is to forget you, like you forgot me....

    you are the poem I never should have written, but baby, you’ll haunt me forever so I should deal with it, then. I can’t run away, ‘cause you have me trapped so I’ll always remember my biggest mistake. you choke me and smoke me like the fire you are, and you leave...

    love is stronger than I am alone, but I hate how much I need you. my buoy, my support, my flotation device - you keep me from drowning so that love will suffice. love is heavy, pushing down on me - but it’s a nice sort of pain, and it makes me feel free. love is a blanket, and yes it ...

    I wish we weren't friends. I wouldn't feel guilty, But I can’t help my lies; Could you look me in the eyes And say you don’t care about me? I’m just afraid that it would end. But I don’t want to lose you, So I sit here and sigh; I’m sorry for withholding the truth....

    Hey there, darling. Don’t be mad at me, please. I’m just sitting here, trying to enjoy this lovely breeze. I don’t want to make any decisions or think about you and me. I’d rather not make revisions on what we’re trying to be. Shh, don’t question it - Enjoy the silence of...

    I will never be your first choice. Only a consolation prize for hopeful girls and boys who live their life full of lies. Lies like “I love you,” are by far the worst they tell. Because you want them to be true, and then you’re left unwell. Maybe I’m crazy for wanting, for ...

    I hope my truth messed with your head, because I regret everything I never said. Honesty killed us - it tore us apart, and ripped you to shreds, like you did to my heart. But if it makes you feel better, in this sick, twisted game - I never lied once; Can you say the same?...

    Show up at my doorstep and take me away - (Or if you want to, instead, I just might let you stay). Tell me you love me (it doesn’t have to be true). Is that a strange plea? ‘Cause it’s all I want from you. Be my hero tonight - it’s my final request. I hope you’ll do what’s ...

    If I am telling the truth, the only reason it is still him (though, admittedly, my feelings are dim) is that I am afraid that if it was not, it would no doubt be you....

    My love is quiet, barely shown, but still as vibrant - still unknown. My love is strong, like you’ve had to be - it hasn’t been long, but it’s everything. My love, it’s you, why I’ve been getting along; So why can’t it be me who is your favorite song?...

    I always do this. How am I so dumb? Always pushing - too far, too wrong; Everyday, I screw up worse. Maybe it’d be best if I moved along. Yet, I’m too selfish, (such a terrible trait); Though every mistake I make lets you down. (Forget me, please. I’m not someone you could miss.)...
