For its such a lovely day
To have to always feel this way
And the time that I will suffer less
Is when I never have to wake”

I want you to want me the way I want you,
I want you to want me want you that way too.

Anonymous asked: I'd like to know what about the "girl" has effected you so greatly.

I have suffered through chronic depression most of my life.  she made me feel important.  like i was needed and wanted.  she made me feel loved.   I hadn’t felt happy in such a long time, I almost didn’t know what to do or how to feel or what to say.  The way she looked at me melted my heart.  She inspired and motivated me.  She made me want to be a better person.

the cure

i can taste her echoes like lavender dreams

and feel her heart beat as my memory screams

and i can feel my core as it’s tearing away

like an umbilical tow-chain of human waste

I’d sell my soul but it’s wrapped in you

and I’d sell my heart but that’s yours too

i want it all and still want more

i want to be the perfect score

i always want to be her whore

but i feel like just another sore

wax mannequin duplicate please take my place

the loneliness has sucked the life from my face

there’s almost no feeling where the skin used to be

now that she’s gone - there is almost no me

it’s lucid and placid where i planted the seed

but can’t tell the difference from the sprout and the weeds

i want it all and still want more

i want to be the perfect score

i always want to be her whore

but I feel like just another sore

she’s everything that i adore

she’s the opiate that puts me on the floor

i am the ocean she is the shore

i am a virus and she is the cure.
