Your subtle words tear me apart
and at every vowel I fall even harder than
How something so little, never intending to hurt,
can make me want to just erase everything…
we erase everything?
I’ll ask for this until the day I go under,
to never repeat what just happened.
gotten things taken away too many times
and I know when to pull the plug.
And the water will wash away
of you looking down on me
The whirl of every thought being flushed down this drain.
And I can only wish for you to
Every ink blotch there’s another flicker of hope.
Is this what you intended?
It was everything
I could never expect.
Soothing as your words come,
I feel nothing but pain.
I hope you know you are the reason my feet are hanging
on the edge of this cliff
Now, thought late, I notice that
nothing really seems
to slowdown until it is about to end.
Every second to an hour and we dont even care
nothing to me
you're everything to me
and yet, my brain signals that you are nothing but an interuption
I live for this
I love this.
This almost fatal thought.
Think of me when you think of her.
Think of her up here instead of me.
I'm falling and the ground is getting closer.
And we're over
It's as safe as nothing to tell you I'm sleeping.
You will ask if I'm taking part in my
My fear will ascend to new heights and it
might take you to get me down.
I'm losing my faith
losing my hope
I'm losing everything.
And it cant be easy for you to just sit back and watch
My hope is now that
maybe this fire will burn out
and the pain will not dwell so deep
Maybe things will go back to normal.

There were always these small things that
led up to this.
Things that were only recently revealed to me.
And at that point in time, while looking back,
I regret saying
things that once made me laugh.
Now in my gut resides a feeling that I've felt
too many times in the past months.
And while I'm here at rock bottom,
I only figured that it couldn't get worse.
Remind me never to assume again.
I’m staring at your through glassy eyes.
There’s an aching in
and when I blink it hurts.
They made it sound so good.
They lied, They lied,

I walk around with ‘lost’ written on my face
but you swear I’m found.
I’ve been thinking…
didn’t you say
it only got better?
Well, It’s gotten worse.

The smell of something lost…and it’s gone.
This is where your
time is spent.
This is where your mask unfolds.
You gave up and you gave in,
and everything you thought
you could handle…
It was everything you missed.
was it worth it?
everything-for a brief taste of the past?
It’s 4:48am and you’re getting distant
With every passing moment.
Every second is one you
cant take back
Every minute is one you regret.
if this continues, you wont make it
to the end.

When you know every moment is closer to
there isn’t much room for an escape plan.
And your heart is pacing
but you’re just lying
Watching your shirt rise and fall
with every breath.
The pen is shaking from your trembling fingers.
Was this how it was suppose to happen?
You hear tick to a clock that doesn’t exist.
And every line you

I’m so sick of

There’s nothing left for me.
Who’s to save the drama queen

I saw you make your way to the door
and you know everyone was watching you go.
I had to think of

Even a lie or two was necessary.
