Drunken faces washed out by street lights
Blurred street lights washed out by faces

Images

Monsters.

And I’m afraid that what didn’t kill her
Made her angry

And as always
Secrets became lies
And lies became chains
And chains became her downfall.
But shouting apologies to the clouds
Won’t make the clouds go away.

“I hate this.”
“But you love it too.”


And it didn’t change the fact that nothing was uttered after that
Because there’s a girl who gets along with strange voices
She listens to the one that comes easier

Slower

Slowly

Folding

Unfolding

Begin to pull yourself away from sleep
A bottle and a cigarette at sunrise

She never slept

She never liked sunrise either
It was like a knife in the gut
It was ugly.
Because it was too pretty to be real.

And it’s funny how a million houses
Will never be homes
And there will be nothing but drowning girls

And slammed doors

And bitter silence

Shared between people who don’t understand.

And a million friends
Will only be figments of our imaginations
And hugs and handshakes are just the façade before the betrayal

"You’re going to lose your mind if you keep letting it off the leash."

"Why put a leash on something that’ll just drag you across the concrete and

Through the dirt?"


It’ll chew right through it
Then keep devouring anything else that gets in its way
And our greatest enemies, my friend
Are our own minds
Because we can’t get rid of them, now can we?
The thing you love is killing you
The thing you’re trying to get out of is holding you
You’re its only friend
So drunken cigarettes swimming in their own smoke
Are not monsters
Because they never leave

And friends aren’t supposed to leave,

Right?


(Wrong.)

I know right! what kind of voice do you have? (according to other people) mine is quite soft and high, which makes people think I'm very pure and naive :shrug:
