I don't have ambitions or desires.
Being a poet isn't my ambition,
it's my way of being alone.
~ Fernando Pessoa ~

I wasn't supposed to cry.
I did.
A lot.
I was supposed to keep
The perfect family fantasy
Alive for my parents
And my little sister.
I did because I hid
The fact that each night I send
My mascara into
Spider webs that crawl
Down my face in tiny
Little mazes.
There's just too much to
Handle, but one day
It'll all be over,
I just wish that
That day was tonight.

Seriously, you don't understand how much I relate to this. I love it - it's brutally honest and raw with emotion, just absolutely perfect, thank you for writing this :)
