Taping it to my face-
I'll whisper to myself,
That the sun shall shine through to me today.
I'll put my hope out on my way,
I'll whisper that everything will be okay-
That I'm not a hopeless little girl on the stray.
I'll find my way someday soon-
I'll stop the tears between my sighs.
Everything will be okay-
That I'll die another day.
I can't give up,
Knowing everybody has sucky days-
That I might as well smile for those I love.
I'll throw away those nasty pills-
I'll ignore my knife when stress calls my name in the tough times.
I'll be strong today.
I won't cry one tear when I say good bye to him,
I won't think of all the good things he said to me-
How he loves me.
How he used to say my name.
He claims he wants me,
Disappearing with my heart

is safe and its sweet.
It's innocent and free.
And I love you for that.
Looking at you
gives me shortness of breath.
Makes my heart beat fast.
And I want you for that.
Being near you
makes me nervous and scared
I love your scent and aura.
And I'll always be with you for that.
Hearing your voice
fills my ears with joy
eases my heart and my mind
And I could never leave you for that.
You've destroyed my world
You've rebuilt it though
to somthing more beautiful
and I love you for that.
