Walk closer now
As time contracts
Though you are gone you live inside my head,
Your faces reflected in my own.
Our lives stretch out,
The ripples run,
Down generations and regenerations.
Take comfort in this,
Nothing will be lost.

the beautiful edge of ugly -co
"you know, we are made of ugly things." "yes, but have you not heard? ugly is the new beautiful. like the way you always seem to pry at my thoughts and know what i'm thinking; the way you make me talk when i really don't feel like parting my lips and lying to you. it's just like the cyanide and razor blades i keep in my medicine cabinet, waiting for the day when i master the definition of defeat." "then we are the most beautiful thing in the world, because we are spending our days chewing on gunpowder and wilted roses. i spent ten minutes this morning carving your name on the inside of my thigh; somehow, replicating that pain makes me think

Just me.
You always say that nothings ever good enough but you need to stop comparing me Because: I'm not her. I'm not him. and I can't be what you want me to be. I struggle, ad I struggle to find that perfect place that's just mine. But I know that if I do nothing will ever been good enough for you. I'm not her. I'm not him. and I can't be what you want me to be. I can only ever be just me. Some nights I wander, wondering if I'll ever be good enough. But as I look upon the sky there's nothing there asking for me to change. So I'll just realize that I can only ever be just me. Because, I'm not her. I'm not him.

Love

Love is kind. Love is always on my mind. Love is special. Love you chearish. My love for you will never parish.
