What doesn’t kill you
leaves scars
ruins your lungs
dries out all your tears
leaves you lying awake at 4 in the morning
wishing you weren’t alive.

We always want what is kept from us. 
Well maybe I am the liar,
and there is nothing that is left for us.
You are a permanent scar.

I’m always talking in circles, 
I always think until I can’t sleep.

"You are the leaves at my feet.
You are the hum of electric heat. 
I kept myself away,
but I’m starting to like the pain.”

Go buy this. It’s good.


have you ever felt submerged under water
while you’re sentenced to watch the world around you breathe?
the ground below your feet appears to drop further and further
as the frigid water’s surface begins to seethe

you shake and tremble as you imagine the sky that could be above
the surface is within reach, but you’re hesitant to try
if you’d open your eyes, you’d see the hands of the ones you love
but instead, you continue to gasp and question why

why have i been abandoned in a sea with such conflict and unrest?
as you find yourself washed up upon the sun-kissed shore
emotions seem to coincide with the rise and fall of your chest
and you realize what all this time underwater was for

"had not you seen the void that is darkness, you’d never know it was not the clarity that is light
if you had never felt the bitterness of the cold, you’d not know it wasn’t the comfort in warm”
to overcome such a challenge will require that you fight
it is the only way to make it out of the storm
is to fight with all you might

One night,
I will wake up at three AM
And I will roll over
Into your arms.
You will rub my back
Until I fall back to sleep.
I will wait for that.
