"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt

Thanks for all the tears you made me waste
Thanks for every sleepless night
Thanks for all the stomachaches
Thanks for all the doubt in my life

Thanks for all the lies you told me
Thanks for all the empty promises
Thanks for showing me everything you can’t be

Thanks for all the haunting memories
Thanks for not beginning to understand
Thanks for every single moment of agony
Thanks for causing the scars by my left hand

Thanks for causing all the questions about my well-being
Thanks for making the hole in my heart
Thanks for creating the life of the daughter you won’t be seeing
