To Him who I think deserves so much better. He is a good friend. And needs someone to let him in. Deeply. See these scars that bleed.

To Him: Metaphors.

If I was a bird. I wouldn't be here. These bricks and glass couldn't hold me. I wouldn't be here.

If I was a rock star, I wouldn't be here. These sullen feelings and drunk step father couldn't hold me. I wouldn't be here.

If I was a Popular, I wouldn't be here. My clothes and video game haven couldn't hold me. I wouldn't be here. 

I am not a bird. I am not a rock star. I am not a popular.

I am a boy. And I am here. Bricks and glass can hold me. Sullen feelings and a drunk step father can hold me. Clothes and video games can hold me.

In my solitude.  But only if I let it.  And only if I accept second chances from friends who offer it.
