Downward

Light. Too bright.
Your fingers look like claws; Scratching at my soul until it is raw.

Shadows. The wind blows.
Your voice is calling me into the dark; fading spark.

Pitch black. Small crack. Everything will change for the better; because you are a part of me; forever.

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

I look at my reflection in the mirror and see beauty. I look in the mirror and you are staring back over my shoulder.

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

I look at my reflection in the mirror and see me. I look in the mirror, and you are not there staring at me.

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

I look at my reflection in the mirror and see my smile. I look in the mirror and you are fading.

Leave me alone.

crazy

Howling at the lost sense and last tree in my brain
Every word you never said becomes a final fact
My breath stops filling my lungs
(I hate when that happens)
Whispers; loud and clear, turning into clouds
Thoughts are colliding with the edge of my spiralling circles
The voices stop dancing with my mind
(I hate when that happens)

Out of lust and love and touch
I am losing feathers from my wings
Never free to fly. Crazy.

All around me

All around me are hands
Grabbing hands
Taking what I have to offer
Taking more.
All.

All around me are voices
Nagging voices
Making me believe untruths
Making me believe
Everything

All around me are souls
Lost souls
Trying to find their way home
Trying to find
Happiness

All around me are liars
Fucking liars
Burning with their words
Burning the city
Down.

All around me are versions of myself
Versions of who I could be
Too self-conscious to be who I am
Too self-conscious
To live

All around me are reasons to stay alive
Reasons to exist
Making me resist those crippling thoughts
Making me persist.
Stay.

All around me…
… But I should find everything inside my self.
