I write a story.
Because mine is damaged
I marry black ink with lined paper 
and do what I do best.
I write a damaged person
this world has never known.
I write her a life of disappointment 
of sadness
of heartbreak

of risk 
of danger
of death
I waste my time writing
this story
because over its contents
I realize

It is my life

This just came to me and it's about me and how I feel about myself, my life, and my mental health
