this is all
real, realer than I'd
like; my friends are ghosts
passing through the skeleton of me.
I am afraid of their words,
trailing from their lips
like wisps of smoke;
I have secondhand self-esteem
issues. and you,

you are more handsome now
than you ever were before
I was blinded by the
light. you hurt
like I do and in a world
of painkillers and
existential numbness that
is the fucking world, you hurt
like I do and you try
to shake it from your skin
like a shiver. you look at me
like I'm a natural disaster
and I guess I'm shivering, too, but
not for the same reason.

I don't know how to live
without wanting to die; you were
supposed to be the adventure
guiding me
through unfamiliar territory
but you left
and I
don't
feel
like I should.

I understand what it is
now to need someone. every
irregular heartbeat is a mini.eclipse
and I need that spark
so      badly;       I need you
to light me from
the inside like a lantern
because
this fear of the dark
was taught.

you make me relive
the days when I was so alive
they had to pull me
down
from the clouds with an anchor;
life was my song
but
no one
ever knew the right
words, please don't
bring that back to

me.
   let me die with this,
   that frown on your lips
   salt in your wounds--
      i don't like you

      the story repeats.



let's be real.

you are just too gorgeous
beyond your physical years
great as your gargantuan soul
god intended you to be beautiful
and make you out of cat-to-butterfly curiosity
to keep us enraptured
and keep you whole

all my love,
dee :heart:

If I read too much if your stuff in one sitting I'm afraid I'd OD!

Oh gosh, I know this feeling. Maybe not exactly, but it's so relatable. Wonderfully written! This is so tragically beautiful!!
