Stupid smarmy perfect girl. Everyone else is so happy and normal, and I'm a freak. I envy those people with casts, and crutches, or even wheelchairs.

Her silhouette is like soft stone
obscuring the glaring morning sun;
I cannot see beyond her,
and I cannot see her face,

The low soft hum and tick

from a music box missing teeth.
She stirs suddenly.
Looking at the clock,

The vodka I drank still teases my tongue
while cold night air penetrates my clothing.
Salty bitter fire between each lung
Keeps me warm from the cold of self loathing.

Every time I glance out and see
Another who looks like you,
I close my eyes to picture
A you before, once warm and true.
Remember those times we spent?
Laughter complimented with a smile.
Times have changed much from when
Things were actually worth while.
Yesterday I dreamt, today I dream as well
Of when I gave you my love.
Yet while I continued on ahead,
You went to the heavens above.
Destiny took you away,
But not this bond of ours.
Memories flood my mind,
As I now stare at the stars.
Changes have occurred since then,
I have matured, being not as wild.
You witnessed my change once before
Growing up with me as a child.

won't somebody guide me back again,

Will someone make me smile

will someone hold me close,
never letting me go away.

I should be happy today
but I feel empty inside,
