When did my feelings become second to yours? Why are my opinions wrong and absurd? When did my silence become your turn to speak? Why, to you, am I small and weak? Why am I bad even if I’ve done nothing to you? Why, when I give the world, do you a

As I read the text, I am frozen in place. I’m crumbling inside, I’m fine mom, just give me some space. I can’t run or hide,
Every dream is not meant to be remembered But my dream of you I could never forget. Searching for your light through the darkness For the slightest traces of your flawless silhouette.

On nights when onyx raindrops start to fall, I’m often met by memories that I miss. The way you shone, like Helen, o’er them all, The way your ruby lips had felt to kiss. I think of how I held you ‘neath the sky,
If you come across a lonely girl With words as fine and frail as grains of sand, Tell her that most oysters lack a pearl, But do take into yours her tender hand.

The cold and the confusion. The overlooked and the overdoses. The solemn and the silence. The fatigued and the forgotten. This is the only world I know.  
No one listen, No one hear, No one look ,in case you disappear.   No one pray for,  No one to cry, No one to wait for with hopes kept high.   No one to miss, No one to kiss,
For you;
Alone again, hallelujah! Alone again. This year the same as the last: Scraping the bottom of the barrel,

I feel so alone, for I have no place in this world- but to roam. And every face looks down upon me. Disgusted eyes with a false smile. they ignore my silent plea, so I walk another mile.
Once upon a time I displayed a middle finger with a peace sign
The mystery in a hackneyed ballad
I'm looking in on a life that's not mine Its not even a nine You got me jealous Acting all over zealous You're far from perfect as can be seen by your life
I am where I began alone, to face the troubles. Trying to find peace, with none to be found. Hoping to find what I want; No Luck. Disconnected, left to fend for myself. I must grow up, must find,
  I have this weird obsession with the cold. Perhaps I’m simply Fascinated With familiarity, But it knows just the right ways to freeze to the bone Leaving the numbness of my heart

Down, down, down I fall, down this dark descent 
Jimena hates living in this world She comes to a point where sanity and insanity become whole She struggles to understand the meaning of her existence 
When the darkness descends upon your skin,
Seventeen Im done Im sick and tired Of your shun Its icy Blizzardly My price Is misery I suffice. Im sick Im done. Youre not the only one. My head, it hurts
The reflection I see is not me. the person I want to be, is someone that I can't be. the things I say and do are different then what I want. I'm a person, who is lost. can someone find me?

Can a love be forever binding? To return when others cripple As thought of extraneous suitors sour. Relic of the time that has tick tocked, Souvenir of the heart's gift shop,
i don't matter like a snowflake every one different and beautiful all in their own way yet all the same   as they flowly fall into reality no one notices they fill the world
My heart is of a cold bottomless chasm  Ever since you left me in this barren and wretched world I seek for your comfort and embrace Yet, everything is still in my way
You confront me with your fears and all your selfish desires But have you ever thought that your obstacles or hurdles you've compiled? You never lifted a finger or even got off your ass
I inhale embers and spit fire. You're fireproof. Wishing in vain you'd be engulfed by the pyre. You're fireproof. Say it ain't so that when the lights turn low the fire doesn't light the room.

A mirage upon the endless sands The heat whispering for you to sleep Your body slows to the movement of the timid wind The will to survive has vanished like the waters
