When will you leave me alone?
When will you stop bothering me?
I keep thinking I have the upper hand
When suddenly I realize you have control
and its so subtle
yet so completely gripping
and strangling me
the way you won't let go
the way you move me
and torture me
please leave me alone
go away already!
I never said we were friends
and if I did, i didn't mean it.

with what you took away

I found it where you hid it
out into plain sight
where you say i'm safe
into the dark of light

what you say confuses
what you do confounds
your words break up my heart
your stay my heart abounds

i cut myself today
with what you took away
you cut myself today
with what you took away

i read about them kind
that push and hurt wth words
they tie me up in knots
those words that are absurd

and so I see our bonds
of swords and blood and shame
i cut myself today
with what you took away

Dusty window

A cloudy window
A dusty thought
A ray of light?

She sits alone at her computer
typing out, stabbing out her pain
as her fingers bleed on the keyboard

A musical note
A sound of need
a call, her name?

What does she hear? What does she see?
All around is pain, and uncertainty
but the future is full of change
