                I never had to do this before so let’s just start, I guess. I sit in my room in a mermaid onesie, that was bought for a lazy Halloween costume but is now a leisure suit of mine, and with my fairy lights plugged in. What an exciting weekend for a college...

I felt psychotic around her.

I remember you playing with her pony tail,

that’s why you didn’t like me, I have short hair.

You would lay your head against her legs,

You would watch movies and tv shows together,

that’s why you...

I thought when my shirt came off

my stomach would be gone,

That it had moved to my chest.

Eventually you find someone who

wants you, and makes you feel

better than whole.

Someone will put an eff...

I’m hurting you,

even if you won’t admit it.

I make you stressed

when I cry.

I make you frustrated

when I don’t tell you

what’s wrong.

I’m wrong,

for you,

for them,

for myself.
