2:43- [I shouldn't have tried]

Tue, 01/28/2014 - 01:21 -- joules


I don’t understand why it is so hard

For you to suck up your ego for 2 seconds

and let your guard down

You see I need some answers

because the pain is back.

It isn’t pulsating and waking me at 2:43 am

forcing me to bleed and feel the pain on my hips.

But it’s knocking at my door again,



Hoping for once you will give me a few seconds of your precious time.

Maybe Romeo and Juliet wasn’t a bad comparison.

You see at least Juliet’s suicide might come true

While you live on and laugh

because an insignificant girl had the nerve to ask you a question

and you refused to answer.
