Aside

Life

3 Dec

I read this poem as a very depressed teenager, and its stayed with me for almost 10 years so far.

*

Burnt myself a bracelet,
Scratched myself a smile;
Swallowed all the sunshine,
And threw up another lie.

Image

Cried myself a river,
Bled myself a sea;
Watched my body crumble,
Got sick of seeing me.

2

Screamed myself a sonnet,
Poured myself a drink.

Cried for help,

But no one heard,

Oh well, that’s life, I think.
