Your Gift

You have made me a time traveler

I came to you a steely kid with a hunger for danger that refused to oblige me

But you did, filling my purse with pills that promised me nothing

And yet I thought they did


I cried because he wouldn't love me, and I couldn't love anyone else

So I took those plain-jane pills 

And when I closed my eyes I thought I had died (and now I wish I had)

But I woke up, hours later, shaking and pretending to be okay


Now I lose time whenever I'm sad

I don't have to feel anything if I'm not concious enough to feel

I wake up, born again in a new time

But I can't tell what's real and what isn't, and whether I've time traveled, or whether this game I'm playing is going to leave me disheveled, like they say it will.
