Even in the darkness he tasted like sunshine,
Smelt like salt and had arms stronger than the tide.
All he had to do was pull me under.

We drove upstate today, in silence.
I saw the red-orange leaves, fallen from trees,
And realised it was winter. I didn't see the leaves fall at home.
Did I miss Autumn? You were off flying overseas,
What was my excuse?
The leaves had fallen and I was busy, hallucinating, off my face,
Too busy distracting myself to notice the seasons change.

Finally, I'll admit it, it's true:
I'm black and blue all over you.
But here I am, without a clue,
Are you bruising for me, too?

"I'll love you just the way you are," he whispered, "if you're perfect."
And so I tried and I tried to be perfect.
Self medicating day in, day out,
Starving myself to the bones and beyond.
Dying and ripping and covering,
Dripping concealer over who I really was.

Heart Breaker

You were in my dreams again last night,
And I couldn't stand your face.
Everywhere I go, I always see your face.
I loved you so much and I know you felt the same,
Yet you hurt me so and I'm the one you blame.
