Running Up the Down EscalatorIt sucks when you knowMore Like This
The whole world is against you.
No one has faith anymore
That a relationship started when
The couple is young
"High school sweethearts"
Are a thing of the past.
Divorce rates are higher than ever
And that's if you make it even that far.
People in the not-so-distant past
Made these relationships work
All the time.
My grandmother married my grandpa
When she was barely out of high school.
He was a war hero,
And five years her elder.
They loved each other 'til death did them part.
Why is it that my parents' generation
And my generation
Can't make that work?
Maybe it's a lack of faith,
Or a lack of trust,
Or the surge of instant gratification.
"The grass is always greener."
Our grandparents' generation didn't just give up.
They worked and worked
To make their relationship happen.
They understood that relationships take
MASSIVE amounts of effort.
Compromise, understanding, listening.
Nowadays we are all just self-centered
And we give up so easily.

And the way it would tug at my hair
Like a gentle lover.
I miss the taste of your smile,
Your lips at my ear
in each others' hair,
Perhaps our hearts were
only resting against each other.
You said you loved me,
Are you still mad I couldn't
Say it back?
I'm afraid that I'll never
the way that that I loved you.
I hope you're happy, dear.
Whether you think it or not,
You deserved better than my anyways.

Out of reach but so close,
From a place that I like to call
I can hear, I can feel,
But to you- I'm not real.
I'm trapped in my body,
Too far gone to heal.
Sing me a song,
The one I like best,
My heart will keep time from inside of my chest,
I'll listen along from this sleep-like death.

I am sixteen years old.
I am one of the thousands of teenagers who will die this year because of alcohol.
I was a face a voice
Now I'm a statistic.
Just another tragic tally mark.

So let's just write about stuff.
In the past month I've had a transformation. I decided I was going to make myself feel better about me, because bitching about how other people were making my life more difficult wasn't doing anything. So here's what I did.
1) Moved on. If I let myself stoop to the level I was out I am just letting the person get to me like they want to... Here is how it is. I decided to let go and realize that getting out of that big mess was the best way to deal with it. So I did. And guess what? I feel incredible. I feel like that isn't my problem anymore.
2) Don't let anyone tear me down. I know this is a motive behind everything I've had to deal with. I want to be someone who can build people up. I want to leave people with a sense confidence in themselves. Because everyone deserves to hold their head high and become themselves. I

Just you and me
It doesn't matter
We'll do it like no other
Come on turn it up louder
The pound of the music
Pulsing through my vains
Makes me tremble
Just lift me up higher
Up in the air
Help me touch the stars
Never want to come back down
Baby let's set this world on fire
Spell our names out in the smoked sky
It doesn't matter
Let's live forever

you made me like you,
you made me trust you,
and you made me love you.
You forced me to say things to you
that would suddenly form into simple sentences
written on a piece of paper where they now lay under my bed;
used, no longer filled with meaning or a love that I once felt for you.
I hate everything you have put me through.
Why did we promise each other a lifetime of happiness
that slowly turned into stale feelings that became unwanted?
We can't take anything back.
Those simple sentences are now filled with resentment.
My eyes have been stained red from the series of nights
that I lay in bed, weeping and trying to fall asleep
without thinking of your voice.
I wore your shirt
and slowly became disgusted with your scent.
Having sex slowly became the only thing I even wanted.
I closed my eyes and tried to escape into a place
where things weren't always this bad.
You would whisper that you loved me
as we lay silently under my covers,
naked and motion
