God, I miss him.
I think Im crazy to, but I do.
My nails are painted black with silver sparkles.
I feel black with silver sparkles.
I feel dead with flashes of hope, happiness, human.
Im afraid well hit rain.
I keep sipping my water.
Its killing my stomach.
I havent eaten since, well, more than twenty-four hours.
I nearly choked on an ice cube.
I was okay with choking.
I WAS OKAY.
I mean, I wasnt happy, but I wouldnt have minded
God, Im sick.
Im lying to myself, again.
Im not alright; I miss him too much.
We cant be friends though.
It was going to happen, I knew that.
I just wish it hadnt happened so soon.
Damn, it was completely pointless.
I got two hours of sleep last night, because of him.
I cried too long.
I didnt cry enough.
I think I made myself cry.
I wanted to feel sad.

and i'm thinking about you,
and the way you carry your troubles in the bags under your eyes,
and the alcohol running in your veins.
and i couldn't help but notice that you've got bruises in your smile that keep turning purple when the guilt bubbles up,
and your knees are beginning to give into your tight jeans, trying to hold up your heart.
i keep thinking about the way i just want to hold your hand, and wash the needles out of your lungs.
i want to run my hands through your hair, and remind you not let the stars fall from your eyes just because gravity keeps trying to push them out.
you've been sewing your lips shut, and holding your hands in your pockets,
like the fabric could keep you from falling apart.
[maybe it's the only thing that is]
the house is too loud to hear over today,
and i'm thinking about wrapping ribbons around your wrist.
