Favorite Quote:
"I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul." -Pablo Neruda

I don't know my lines

I have lost the script

I don't know what words to say

I have lost my voice today


Look at all the lights

D*mn, you're such a pretty sight

I think that I am healing

My heart, that's what you're stealing


I am learning my lines

I'm flipping the script

I know the words I want to say

I am searching for my voice today


I want to be your forever

Promise me we'll never sever

I'm so busy looking around

My thoughts have never seemed so loud


I know my lines

I've read the script

I'm shouting the words I need to say

I have found my voice today


I have found my voice today...

This is about me when my self harm finally healed and I could actually speak about my experience to the people I love.
