Rats under her mattress-

She doesn't care, she put them there.

Stains on her wedding dress-

that she still chooses to wear.

She takes it out of her closet when she feels she has lost it,

She places the veil on her head.

It smells like dresser and sawdust-

and all the tears that she shed.

She laughs at herself and drifts off to sleep

Dreams of bunnies and chocolates

...sweet little things...

The demons on her staircase-

would repeat everything she'd say.

Laugh at her conversations-

The names she would call herself...

And the insane memories of her trying to kill herself...

She puts pills in her mouth-

and spits em' back out in the sink.

She didn't have the guts to swallow those things...

She runs around her house like theres no where else to go.

Theres a whole life out there...if only she wasn't afraid to go.

But shes afraid to live-

She can't forgive herself for all the bad things she did.

She sits in her house like a crazy person-

she talks to every mouse she sees.

She pleads.

She pleads.

"God please help me!"
