She does not fear being alone / Because she already is, / lost in her thoughts and mind / where no-one else can enter.
Singularity by iloveyoumiss

She sits / surrounded / by the darkness / of her own / creation / of her own / imagination.

But I still love you

You like guys / and I still love you. / Even though I know you’ll never, / ever, / feel the same way.

My lack of sleep

It scares you, / because you think I do it on purpose. / The worst thing though / is that it is accidental / Because that means / that I am…

Should I?

Every time I look in the mirror / should I start to cry? / Should I want to die? / Should I feel so fat? / so ugly? / so unloved? / so usel…

Can’t you see?

Will you ever stop lying? / Maybe tell someone the truth? / That you hurt yourself / More than anyone else ever could

Do you love both me and her?

Does that mean I should not love her? / She makes me happy, Lord. / But the church says that gays make you sad. / Is that true, Lord?

Hard to get through the silence

The silence that is there / Whenever I see you / Makes it hard for me / To make it through.

A heart to love you with

But my heart is slowly breaking / Piece by piece / The cracks are extending / And soon it will shatter

I am ‘good’

Why do we even bother with / Pretending anymore? / We both know / That neither one of us is ‘good’.

Why can’t you stay?

What am I supposed to do / Without you? / You are my best friend / But now you are leaving, / And there is nothing I can do.

You’ve always had a maze / That surrounded you / But it used to be simpler, / I was still the only one / Who could get through it. / But mo…

I love her, because she’s her

Maybe most people / Would say that you / Are more beautiful / But the reason I love her, not you / Is she is her / And you are you.

I love your ‘imperfections’

You press your lips / Against my finger / And I find myself / Falling for you all over again.

The overration of Happiness

Happiness is overrated. / I know it. / You know it.

I can’t share it with you

I can’t always share / Because the truth is too scary / And I don’t want to hurt you / By letting you in.

Lies of protection

I am scared / They will whisper / Lies about me / Laugh about me / But more than that / I am terrified / They will whisper / About you.

If only I still loved you

I wish that / We were friends again / Like we used to be / I wish that / We didn’t fight / About every little thing

Why don’t you let me?

You swear you love me / That you will love me forever / Then why / Won’t you let me say / “I love you”?

Hidden Scars

The scars on me / You won’t find on a wrist / You’ll have to search hard / Just to see if they exist
