You Play A Risky GameYou Play A Risky Game3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You play a risky game but there's a stake;
You will not know how much it hurts, until
You go farther than the body can take;
You cannot break the bond against your will.
You think it is fair game, but it is not.
You think it is alright, but you don't know.
It is not just a game, but we have fought.
So many times you've done it, that it shows.
I have seen many others do it too,
But we still stop in time to save your life.
You have to know what's pure and sweet and true.
You have to learn how to put down the knife.
All you need to do is pick up a pen,
We'll stop in time to save your life, again.
You're better than you thinkPut that blade down, eat something, stop starving yourself, smile, put that rope away from around your neck, wipe away those tears, delete the message that bitch just sent to you, let your scars heal, laugh about it, talk to someone, find help, don't let those words hurt you.You're better than you think2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Go look in the mirror, tell me what you see, and don't tell me all you see is the person you don't want to me. Buy a better mirror, look a little harder, stare a little longer. You'll find something beautiful about yourself, something other people don't have. Remember it, don't let it leave your sight. Remember that you're better than what people call you, what they say behind your back, the rumors that have gone round about you. And if you're going to cry because the person who you love doesn't love you back because they believe that bullshit then push them away. Don't let them use you or treat you bad. You'll find someone better, everyone does.
You have your friends there to guide and support you, and even if it

But on the outside I'm trying
To pretend that I'm alright
As I'm battling this fight
I dress in long sleeves and jeans
I hide my scars so they can't be seen
No one would suspect
That inside I'm so wrecked
That I feel so empty
'Cause no one's by my side
'Cause I've been a jerk and lied
Just trying to protect myself and hide
So many nights I've cried myself to sleep
Hurting myself wishing the cuts were more deep
How I'm aching inside and out
That I'm filled with so much doubt
That I've hated myself for all these years
That behind the smile I hold back the tears
That in the end I know I've become so weak
That if I told you the truth, you'd think I'm a freak
That I feel like everything's all my fault
That I wish my heart would come to a halt
That I was dead a long time ago
That I'm ready to be sent down below
