The numbness is growing, Or is it sadness instead, That will plague me until death. I feel so alone in this world Where my darkness descends. I feel forgotten  by my memories
I reach out Then I pull back And squeeze my eyes shut After all, They don’t need me anymore   I stand in the dust
I watch the wave, come in, go out, come in, go out. Softly brushing the white sand, of a bloody beach.

look into my eyes  you will see blue  look into my heart 
I was thinking of you today You taught me so much in so many ways Like how to give up and just say goodbye And then to turn "love" into "wanting-to-die" You and my mom, you had it planned out so well

He had dreams without Ambitions; A house, but not a Home.
Howling for recognition Incapable of moving Laying here alone Where are you
Once upon a timeI was a pumpkin,Orange and plump,Happy and safe, but

My reflectlion distorted by the cracks As I passed the entry way mirror Walking through the vacancy  My own footsteps echoed like thunder; I stop It's so quiet I could hear the dust Settling behind me
You made me Then you left You fought for me But soon it became to much And you gave up You took a break One that was often ridiculed Exspecially by me now You didn't want me then

God says do not covet, but how? How do I tame my jealous eyes from wanting what I don't have? Contentment is never within my grasp. Some days I see it the beauty others claim is there

I can’t feel bad for what he did, Or what he never said. I can’t feel sad or anything, Even though he is dead. He left her as a baby, Saying nothing, not even a goodbye, To his little baby girl he left
A brush of his plumps makes thy drown in thought. Savoring sweets off thy flesh though aren't dame. Melting in cold hands one's soul does not rot. Embracing, peering at movement in frame.
I alone am here to stay, Far away far away I look at the mirror and what do I see? But a lonely little girl like me I wonder if she can talk like me Or walk like me Or even run a mile like me
How are you? It's awful I don't know. Where have you been? Not in my life; that's for sure Why did you leave? I can't seem to find you. Why am I still here? You left me behind you.
