Give a damn

Maybe I

Need to leave

To run

Be free

Not feel trapped

I’d crawl out

Of my skin

Given the chance

A change

Of pace

I need a plan

Get out of bed

Give a damn


You say you can’t

Handle this

Can’t handle me

Because one day

You’ll have to leave

You can’t get attached

For fear of getting stuck

You’re so glad 

We’ve never fucked

You won’t hold my hand

But you’ll kiss me in the dark

Cuddle up until

You’ve got a grip on my heart

I know you say 

You’ll have to leave one day

But what about me

I know you can’t

Get attached

Because of feelings

You might have

Should I sit here

While you make up you mind

Deciding if being with me

Would be fine

Let you waste 

All of my time

I guess that’s fine

You say you want this 

But you don’t know

So maybe it should be me

Who decides if you go

Glued to the Ground

How many nights did I cry

How many times I wished

Just one of us would die

Never told to go to my room

I was already there

Hiding at the top

Of those old creaking stairs

Insufferable you were

But so was I

Sitting in that room

Losing my fucking mind

Hours without end

Seeing reality bend

No way out

There never was

Even if I left

My mind was stuck

Glued to the ground

Those memories haunt me now

Like a scene I can’t forget

How they make me sick

Can’t forget, can’t move on

But you can’t hurt me

Now I’m gone

A cruel world

And bitter cold house

I forget my childhood

I pushed it all out

Out of my mind

I lost all of that time

But don’t you forget

That’s all on you

I guess in the end

We all lose


Line by line

And word for word

Writing makes voices heard

I’ve never had much to say

But with a pen


I will display

Not always pretty

I’ll admit

But nothing could make me quit

I’m writing now

I will write on

I’ll be writing

Until I’m gone
