Music makes me think of you. Smiles make me think of you. Poetry makes me think of you. Laughter makes me think of you. Nature makes me think of me of you.
As I remember my happy times, I long for them back. Me just a whisper of your past, but you are still screaming in my ear. I still laugh at our walks together, our childish conversations.
You call this a crush? I feel like shit everyday you avoid me. I feel like I deserve to die because what I've done. God has cursed me and left me to wilt in this ditch.
God I hurt so much. Without you to talk to. Im trying so hard to fix it, but god I'm tired. Just tired. Emotionally, physically, psychologically. Is it even worth it at this point?
Roller coasters used to be fun. With it's ups and downs and twists and loops. I had you by my side to make it fun. Now my highs are scary, because I can only go down from them.
You were my world. You were the sun of my solar system. The music of my life. You mattered to me more than anything. And you still do. Did you ever think about me? Did you ever dream about us?

Everyday I fight a war. I get up without the guarantee of seeing you. I go to school without you to make it bearable. I smile without you to make it real. I laugh without you to make it full.
What do you see when you see me? A good friend that fucked up? A horrible friend that never truly cared? A stranger that needs to give up? A jerk that is too clingy? A loser that you wanted to humor?

Even the happiest times are melancholy without you. Even the sunniest days are dark without you. Even the warmest blankets are cold without you. Even the fullest rooms are empty without you.
I was born in the same generation as you, lucky enough to meet you. I was lucky enough for you to move to my town. You visited me in the summer, lucky enough for you to care.
Every smile without you is an empty one. Every laugh without you isn't worth it. Every step without you is heavy. Every breath without you hurts. Every day without you is wasted.
Never did I think that I wouldstoop so low as to fall intothis deep darkness that doesn't endthis coldness that punctures the soul.This is all my fault, my fault thatnow you don't want to talk to me.

Before I end my sentence, Listen for once. Breathe through your heart, feel through eyes, and sing with an open mind.
At time like this, I clench my teeth so that the tears don't fall. When I hear the words that come out of your mouth, I feel useless, incompetent... Like a dead weight. Sometimes I wish I hadn't been born.
I’ve heard sorry before but nothing like this.
albino skin, golden scales i once saw you in a nightmare man and woman declaring disinterest as they sit idle in a car wash pink raincoat girl, why do you put so much pepper in your soup?

hey daddy, it's me, you're little girl... I need to tell you something that will make you want to curl. I went to that party, it was right down the block, but I didn't bother telling you, I was distraught.
Your awake scared because of me.Intensely in fear searching to see.What is hiding in the dark.Because of me you are left with this painful mark.That haunts you in your dreams every night.You think nothing is ever going to turnout right.In denial a
What I did, I didn't mean. Yet that remains to be seen. It was an accident but anger is imminent. I expected it yesterday. I expect it today.

It’s said that the love you take is equal to the love you make. But no one has ever tried to calculate the intensity of heartbreak. So you sit in your room and listen to sad songs with candles burning
Procrastination tempts us all, Regaling us with promised time, Omitting, though, this troubled fact: Clipped-out minutes would be thine. Removing time from future selves, Assaulting goals you've yet to make,
