Some people never go crazy, What truly horrible lives they must live.
-Charles Bukowski

They've promised us that dreams can come true but forget to mention nightmares are dreams too - Oscar Wilde

Angry at the world and bitter inside
Alone in life and unable to trust.
All because of the person she once loved
Now she wants to set the world on fire.

Dropping in grades
And failing every class.
Mad at herself hung up on the past.
So she’s going to set the world on fire.

People scream and run away
But she’s looking for the one person who will stay.
Who will sit with her among the flames?
Because the world is on fire and she is to blame.
