Playful smiles Colorful walls wrapped up like gifts Evenings of laughter Car rides that turned to roller coasters

A movie is playing Inside my mind The type I’ve come to expect Not bygone moments Captured in the essence of time No, These are the instants Which have not occurred Or may never at all

Dream of sleep and wonder, of cold rain and thunder. Dream of something exhilarating and painful. Dream of life by the handful. Dream of a smile
I lay under the sea of giants, standing tall and free, Tilt and see a mural of brown, red, yellow, and green. The overwhelming of colors I feel all mixed inside of me,

Hey Dylan, I’ve been here for you for a while now. But for 19 years straight, you’ve been nothing but a villain. Your love toward me, you disavow.   I didn’t do anything to deserve this. With each puff,
Coming up to bind The troubles ahead will soon unwind. Ahead I go without a trace, Into the wilderness soon I will face. This is my time When life at its peak is sublime.
It was about November when I began my descent, slowly, softly sinking. That night it picked up like quick sand. Clouded lungs to match my clouded mind. Fists clenched tight,
Fire, light, inhale. Breathe, obsorb the poison. Deep breath, obsorb the smoke. Feel The Addiction Take Over. Breathe, obsorb the pain. Deep breathe, obsorb the cancer. Feel The Addiction Take Over.

Millions say writing is what saved them. Writing is all that they have. And I am one to stand up, and agree. Writing saved me from the dark hole my mind was creating when I had depression.

When thousands of thoughts go through my head When the everyday pace ceases to end I close my mouth and open my heart I write out the panic and all of the pain This domino effect brings rushed worries and thoughts
When I’m standing at this ridge between today and tomorrow, And I’m learning to fix my mouth to call myself a woman, And l scratch for the crack of a niche in which I’ll fall into place, I exhale and I write.
Slowly the years of my life go and I sit here with nothing to show. I look up at the beautiful sky, not really caring whether I live or die. Some things just can’t be described.
She was so happy. She'd dance and laugh and run. No cares or worries, only innocence. Then things began to change, the innocence faded away, and the first time broke her. She's damaged and scarred,

The drips of red were flowing As gravity pulled the liquid down My left arm massacred My right hand the murderer
Mist inside a hollow hole, worn and torn with wear- Edges, obsidian sharp Heavy, with a golden weight Barren earth and air, So thick it's almost dry Thunder cracks the ear An unmistakable throb,
The pain of yesterday is calling my name today, Promising me pain today, Just like I felt yesterday. I don’t want to cry today. I don’t want to ask, “Why?” today.
