I write poems that are not kind or sweet
Cause I've been broken and beat
I cut my arms and watch them bleed
Cause I am not given the love I need.
I can't sleep at night and have nightmares
Cause I feel like no one really cares.
I listen and play the saddest songs I know
Cause every day I feel my depression grow.
I don't have any lofty ambitions or dreams
Cause I've learned nothing is as it seems
I write these laments over and over again
But God, the pain never seems to end.
