"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

you go off and live
your glamorous college life
a life you made sure
didn't include me
i hope you're happy
because i'm not
i'll sleep in my clothes again
tonight on the living room floor
lulled to sleep by the tv
because i can't stand
to be in my bed alone
thinking of you
you go and meet someone new
while i'm left to clean up the wreckage
everyday having to face them all
and ashamed
