Written 11/14

We opened our eyes 

after we kissed.

I looked into your eyes and what I hoped for 

dose not exist.

Disgust in my infancy

Turning all my fears in to indignities 

These big eyes bit off more than it can chew.


Nestled in the arms of the whispering shrew


You make me feel such serenity 

By making me feel so empty

I'm shrinking in your embrace 

In love with the perfect enemy


Looking down the wrong end of a cliff

Everyone laugh at the suicidal dunce

So let me die 

So they can say something positive about me for once.

Seems like I keep finding deeper shades of blue.

I'll just keep digging until it's all fucking black. 

Nick Drake's words never felt so true.

So board with my humdrum song

And I've been in love with loneliness way too long. 


So content with stupidity

Flawless on the back of my eyelids 

All my happiness seems imagery

But you will always


Be pretty.
