Knife Party - Fire Hive
Today has inadvertently turned into a My Chemical Romance kinda day.
i need a hug right now also five hundred thousand dollars in cash
“all these poems about people leaving and not one
about how I convinced myself to stay.
I know what you want to hear-
that I slayed the dragon and swallowed my demons
and laughed in the face of my nightmares
and lived happily ever after-
but the truth is much more ordinary.
the truth is I breathe through the pain
even on the days it whistles between my ribs
on every inhale every exhale
and I celebrate like hell on the days it doesn’t make a sound.”
I need you to want me.
I hate myself,
but that’s ok.
I’d be a liar if I said I was ready
for this. I have a past and a poison, that I can
admit. But this is what I need to bury the years
of debris to break the circle of the cycles and
stop living vicariously and start living for me.
