or so I would like to believe {September 2016}

"Love can't kill you"

Everyday,

Everyday, Something always tries to kill me

My skin stained by toxic ink

A paper cut from a once-gentle love letter

Bruised by falling too hard for a boy

Bruised by falling too hard for a boy Drowned in his fluid words

Bruised by falling too hard for a boy Drowned in his fluid words Choked by my own saliva

Blown away by how easy it is for people

Blown away by how easy it is for people to fall in love

Blown away by how easy it is for people to fall in love to fall out of love

Blown away by how easy it is for people to fall in love to fall out of love to fall

Burnt by early morning sunshine

Struck by a swift kiss

Electricity killing my every nerve

Electricity killing my every nerve shaken awake

Electricity killing my every nerve shaken awake awake

Electricity killing my every nerve shaken awake awake A wake up call

Wake up!

This is your reality:

This is your reality: You are broken by promises

This is your reality: You are broken by promises Misunderstood by poets

This is your reality: You are broken by promises Misunderstood by poets Misspelled by writers

Imprisoned by your own poetry

Imprisoned by your own poetry Scarred by the simplicity of its words

I am scarred

I am scarred I am scared Scared of trying too hard

I am scarred I am scared Scared of trying too hard to dodge the bullets

I am scarred I am scared Scared of trying too hard to dodge the bullets to scrape the knife

I am scarred I am scared Scared of trying too hard to dodge the bullets to scrape the knife to let go

These are my rope burns

These are my rope burns They burn like my ablaze heart

These are my rope burns They burn like my ablaze heart Burnt and over-beaten

A beat

A beat For the nth time,

A beat For the nth time, It stops for a second

A beat For the nth time, It stops for a second And for a second

A beat For the nth time, It stops for a second And for a second I thought it would never start again

It echoes

It echoes again,

It echoes again, and again,

It echoes again, and again, and again

I can't understand

I can't understand Whose name it's calling out

I can't understand Whose name it's calling out It's simply babble

I can't understand Whose name it's calling out It's simply babble It's as simple as that

A simple complication

A simple complication I think it's called "love",

A simple complication I think it's called "love", but I know it isn't

A simple complication I think it's called "love", but I know it isn't Because

Love can't kill you,

Love can't kill you, yet here I am so close to dead.
