Get Well Soon

Poem by: rosemariexo

Summary

I'm not a poet; I'm a song writer. So anything I post as "poetry" is lyrics to an original song.
This one is inspired by the book "Get Well Soon" by Julie Halpern about a girl in a mental hospital who narrates her story in a series of letters to her best friend, Tracy. Great book, check it out. Feedback on these lyrics would be great and I'd love you forever (:

Walls, surrounded
By pictures of everything that mean nothing at all.
The crawl space in the back of my mind has been so unkind,
It's shrinking as I am thinking
Of what to say to everyone I've let down
And what to say to you.

Dear letters unsent written by a broken friend.
I am bathing in my own sin, contagious to the skin I'm in.
From the comfort of reality, I was bent by my twisted fairytale mentality.
These bruises prove that all that's left to lose are the veins that protest I'm no better than all of the rest.

Crack a window, 'cause it's my only getaway.
Needlessly, it's safe to say you won't miss me if you look away.
As I struggle to release me from myself, I am content being anyone else.
I am not scared; I am too prepared.

Dear letters unsent written by a broken friend.
I am bathing in my own sin, contagious to the skin I'm in.
From the comfort of reality, I was bent by my twisted fairytale mentality.
These bruises prove that all that's left to lose are the veins that protest I'm no better than all of the rest.

Please say it's too late to plead for myself again...
