Wounded

Blood spills onto the floor.

I was better where,

I was miserable why didn’t you leave me there?

I deserve this hurt.

I deserve the pain, the embarrassment.

I am a disappointment.

I am heartsick and it is not your job to mend it.

Find someone full of life.

Just leave me here to die.

When You Ask Me How I Am

I’m just a little lost right now,

It’s only my second year of university

and I’ve already failed two classes,

He doesn’t want me back,

I can’t remember my fathers laugh,

Getting out of bed has been really hard,

I’m happiest after a bottle of wine,

I don’t believe him when he calls me beautiful,

I haven’t danced in awhile.
