Her heart was an open book with beautiful pages and detailed lettering. She wanted people to read her story in hopes that it would make them write their own. Instead, every person who came across the pages of her heart ripped out their favorite story and took it with them. They folded back pages and bent up corners. They signed their name with sloppy writing and with a simple 'goodbye'. This book is now tucked away in the darkest parts of her, because no one wants to read a tragic story with a bad ending.

When the fight is already tough

and just keeps getting tougher

When the sea of emotions is rough

and the storm of guilt makes it rougher

I know that I'm just a burden

that others have to carry

so I take all of my good sense

and in shame and torment its buried.

I just want to close it all ofF

to stop hearing, listening, seeing

I want to drift away dreamless, away from this world and my entire being.

It sucks sometimes. it really does. Who ever said life was going to be easy, though?
